stet said:
A story about Valention Achak Deng who was among the thousands of Lost Boyz who fled their war torn country of Sudan into Ethiopia and Kenya in hopes of eventually starting a new life in the US. This really is an outstanding book. Sudan is divided between the Northern Sudany Muslims and the Southern Sudany Christians. The Muslims wanted to take control over the whole country and convert the Christians. Deng is able to overcome many obstacles in order to get to the US only to succumb to more troubles
