Reviews

"Rosenblatt's debut is fiction, but rooted in fact: the plight of 'lost boy soldiers' was all too real. Thanks to careful research and a well-written narrative, Rosenblatt brings their stories to vivid and memorable life. The lost boys, at least here, are found." --Booklist

"Reza's adolescent rebellion, passion for music, and loyalty to his friends make him an appealing protagonist, and the constant dangers threatening him create a compelling read. Secondary characters demonstrate the complexity of attitudes and loyalties during the Iran-Iraq conflict . . . . A powerful look at a tragic period in history." --School Library Journal

"This hard-hitting first novel opens in Iran in 1982. . . . The resilience of Rosenblatt's protagonist strikes a strong chord." --Publishers Weekly
