Product Overview

Part "My Side of the Mountain" and part "The Red Badge of Courage," a gripping journey of survival across a country at war
From Arthur Dorros, author of many highly-acclaimed picture books, comes this thrilling first novel.
Thirteen-year-old Ehmet, separated from his parents by the violence in his native Bosnia, travels alone across the country to a place he's heard rumors of, a village of children living in peace. Along the way, Ehmet uses all his skills, remembered and read, to find food, shelter, direction, and a new life for himself.
This important and timely book, based on extensive travel and research, shows readers the cost of war and the importance of young people in building peace.
