★ “Anderson…breathe[s] ferocious life into a story that needs to be told. This is one of those tough but invaluable books with the power to increase a reader’s awareness of and empathy for teens who have lost the right to be young.”—Booklist, starred review
 
A riveting account…[where] greed, guilt, and redemption are layered in a sober yet tender narrative showing the lengths one will go to for loved ones.”—Kirkus Reviews
 
“An intriguing examination of ways familial loyalty and guilt can lead anyone to make desperate choices. Anderson uses the exploration of manipulation and coercion to craft a thought-provoking narrative.”—School Library Journal
 
“[Anderson] makes it clear how difficult it is for even children to survive this faith-based and historically rooted conflict unscathed.”—Bulletin of the Center for Children’s Books

“Narrator Kevin R. Free breathes dramatic urgency into Anderson’s intense story…Listeners hear and feel Abdi’s horror and numb, helpless despair at the atrocities he witnesses—and perpetrates—and we rejoice at his redemption.” —AudioFile, Earphones Award Winner
