Overview

A heart-wrenching tale of selfless love and the powerful desire to survive. When little Kai is brought to the orphanage, an older child, Pax, immediately takes him under his wing. Left on their own after the orphanage shuts down, Pax is determined to keep Kai safe, but life on the streets is tough—and dangerous. In a desperate attempt to make enough money to keep Kai in school, Pax unwittingly transports a bomb, which explodes, killing and maiming hundreds of people. Pax and Kai escape the deadly explosion, only to be arrested and charged with terrorism. What follows is a descent into the hellish prison where brutal guards stop at nothing to make Pax talk. This haunting novel brings home the tragic situation in which children in over 40 countries are tortured with impunity. But it also speaks to the strength of love in the most dire situations.
