A very engaging multi-cultural book. The story is about a family who leaves Afghanistan because of the Taliban. The family pays to escape from Afghan. but when the family is getting in the truck, the Taliban shows up and the little 6 year old sister is left behind. The family arrives in the US heartbroken over the little girl but try to make a life in their new country. The main character Fadi (who feels it is his fault for letting go of her hand) enters a photography test in which the winner receives a ticket to India. He plans to win the contest and have him and his father fly to India and then go to Pakistan and search for his sister. Unfortunately he does not win and he is bullied at school due to 911. Ironically one of the contest judges shows Fadi pictures of a refugee camp and he sees his sister in the picture. In the end, the family is united. A great story of accceptance, friendship and never giving up.
