This book is a good one to get you thinking. How willing am I to speak up when I know something is wrong, even if the consequences are severe? It surprised me at the end that even some of the boy's closest relations wondered why he did way he did, saying, "He should have known better that that... a sixteen-year old boy cannot change the government." That got me thinking too. How often do I do nothing because I don't think I can make a difference? Hmmm... sorry to start ranting in a book review; like I said, this one makes you think! I highly recommend it. I'm glad someone told this boy's story.
