Gripping. An understanding of the horrors of war. Ciould be a story ripped from the headlines. Some parts gave me nightmares. Well worth reading.

This is an excellent book that is well written and easy to read. As a Persian woman, I was able to connect with the characters and the difficult experiences they had as young children. I highly recommend this book to anyone, especially those who feel a strong connection with their friends.
