In the Sea there are Crocodiles is an inspiring book and keeps you wanting more in Enaiatollah's story.
In a way it was just like Parvana (by Deborah Ellis), and was very touching. It gives you a big idea on what life is like over in that part of Asia.
I am a Year 7 student and found it very informative and knowledgeable.

Enaiatollah Akbari is a 10-year-old boy living in Afghanistan. His father was forced to drive a lorry full of merchandise for the Taliban, and was attacked by bandits and lost his life and all of the merchandise. The Taliban certainly weren't going to pay for it so they came to their family and said they would take the two boys, Ena and his little brother. After a few years of hiding, their mother smuggled Ena over to Pakistan where he would be safe. He told him three rules and left, hoping that he would have a better life without the Taliban on their tails. The boy tells of his story from one country to another, working for a living, and ending up from Afghanistan to Italy.
