Publisher Description

I read somewhere that the decision to emigrate comes from a need to breathe.

The hope of a better life is stronger than any other feeling. My mother decided it was better to know I was in danger far from her; but on the way to a different future, than to know I was in danger near her; but stuck in the same old fear.

At the age of ten, Enaiatollah Akbari was left alone to fend for himself. This is the heartbreaking, unforgettable story of his journey from Afghanistan to Italy in an attempt to find a safe place to live.

Ebay still better! ,

Emotional, eye-opening, enjoyable true story.

A really good read, the story of a young boy that undergoes the harshest of childhoods. This really opens your eyes as to how lucky we are to be safe and have a stable education. A difficult-to-put-down book as every step in the book is tense and the fact that it is a true story adds all the more. Reasonably well written, in the boy's words, but translated from Italian I believe so not amazing language. Worth the cost!
