Goodreads asked Brian Conaghan:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Brian Conaghan From a news story that I was watching around the time of the Arab Spring and seeing how children were being thrown into civil wars and disputes not of their making. How they were thrust into the world of child soldiers, freedom fighters etc...that was my starting point, but I was also interested in a friendship that transcended cultures.
