Ten-year-old Enaiatollah Akbari and his mother fled from Afghanistan to Pakistan because of threats to sell the boy into slavery. While he slept, his mother returned to her other children in Afghanistan. Alone, Enaiatollah struggled to survive. In a journey that included traversing mountains, hiding in the fake bottom of a truck, and riding in a rubber dinghy, Enaiatollah crossed Pakistan, Iran, Turkey, and Greece, and finally arrived in Italy where he was granted asylum. His story, magnificently rendered in Fabio Geda’s lyrical voice, is essential reading for all who wish to understand the plight of refugees. (Random House)
