This is a wonderfully written and an amazing novel by an amazing writer, Elizabeth Laird. This book is heart-warming, brilliant and can't be avoided which deals about two boys - Mamo and Dani and their lives, experiences and adventures. This is and will be one of the best books ever written and is definitely my favorite and is my winner.

On the one hand, it's a great slice-of-life story set in Ethiopia, 23 miles outside of Addis Ababa, and it's short, accessible and well written. On the other, I think it's problematic that it's written by a white British Commonwealth author. She lived there for years, she's clearly researched it, but there's also a never ending niggle that makes me wonder if this is a portrait that an 11 year old boy from Kidame would recognize? Is it a good book ? Yes. Is it the book I was looking for? Almost.
