This was a very interesting biography. It had side stories about the interesting people Alex meet along his journey and had some very funny moments. I enjoyed reading it and would recommend it to anyone to read to remind them how lucky we really are to live in the USA. I won this book through Goodreads Firstreads.

.This is an outstanding, compelling novel that chronicles the journey of a young man at a critical turning point in his life: crossing the Iron Curtain, and arriving upon the shores of the United States with his family. Alex's personal experiences in America - sometimes joyous, sometimes painful - are set against the colorful, eventful backdrop of U.S. history, from the Vietnam War to the tragic attacks of 9/11. The story is told with wit, candor, and a great deal of emotion and spirituality. Hi ...more
