This story is set in the Afghanistan war.
The characters are Aman, Aman's mum, Matt, Grandpa, Shadow, Uncle Mir, Polly
Matt's parents and soldiers.
It is a moving story about
a boy called Aman and his mum who live through hard life in their Afghan cave.
One day they set out with a bottle of water, a crust of bread and Shadow, a dog who mysteriously
appeared outside their cave. To find a safe home and food. But along the way things go wrong.
I liked the book very much and thought some bits like when the
grandma died were sad.
