You are gonna cry at the end, it's SOOOO happy!
I couldn't stop listening to this book. It was that interesting! It's about acts of kindness. It's about how history is the stories of people and the battles they fight within. It's about being a foreigner in a strange country. And it's about the Iran Hostage Crisis of the late 1970s. It's about wanting and finding friends and the importance of family. But I can only say these things looking back on all the little events that happened in the story. While I was listening, I just wanted to find out what happened next. This is a good book for mature ten year olds and up. Nice for a family road trip. I am 65 and I loved it!!!

Fascinating story to listen to!
Congrats to the the Author Firoozeh Dumas, receiving the inaugural New Americans Children's history book prize. Firoozeh is a great story teller. She makes it so easy to picture each scene while she is capturing moments of history in her strong words with her warm voice. I have also listened to Funny in Farsi & Laughing without accent as well! Kudos to her.
