Reviews

"Rarely is YA historical fiction this immediate and involving." Publishers Weekly

"Readers are exposed to a compellingly authentic picture of life in the likes of Tashkent and Samarkand during the war - a cruel world where the state effectively abandoned homeless children, but where some remnants of kindness and humanity survived. A gripping, evocative story." Kirkus Reviews with Pointers
