This is not a story about TWO boys...it is primarily concerned with one. Valentino, one of the Lost Boys of the Sudan, is the focus of this book from the beginning to the end.
Don't be intimidated if you know little about the conflict in the Sudan. The plot is easy to follow and well explained.
This was one of the most amazing, thought provoking, well-written books I have read in a long time. I emerged with a better understanding of Africa, the absurdity of American culture to much of the world, human rights, and the inexhaustible human spirit. I cannot recommend this book highly enough. Mine is going on my keeper shelf.
