Dear Librarians,

Zara is 14 years old and running for her life. Her home has been destroyed and she doesn't know if she will ever seen her family again. Yet she finds a strength she didn't know she had, drawing on the determination of generations of her African family. Her perilous journey takes her to England and then the USA (58) where she finds a new purpose. Zara, and the other inspiring characters in this book, reveal how much we have in common, despite our differences. Their stories are based on interviews with survivors of Sudan's war, and like The Kite Runner, their tales illuminate a forgotten but fascinating part of the world.
