Surviving Tracy

What an amazIng book. Two motherless boys growing up in Kabul which is about to be invaded by the Soviet Union. A story of friendship that is tested to the core./Broke my heart and enlarged my world

From another pinner: Someone Knows My Name, by Lawrence Hill: Historical fiction about a girl who is taken from her home in Africa and sold into slavery. Amazing story. Highly recommend this book!

“What really knocks me out is a book that, when you're all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it.” ― J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye

A good book. A journey through history to find out the truth. It definitely has a modern and different writing style that I'm not sure I'm a fan of. Still good.
