In a powerful and exhilarating novel Khaled Hosseini tells the story of a young boy’s journey to find himself through the struggles of growing up in Afghanistan. Torn between the best friend he loves and the father he can’t impress Amir must chose, and the decision will change his entire life. Stricken with guilt and in danger of the invading Russian forces, Amir and his father flee to America where Amir grows into a man. As he tries to be happy in his new life he is constantly haunted by the memories of his childhood and the very minutes that changed his life forever. What Amir doesn’t know is that he will soon be thrown back into a very much changed Afghanistan on a mission that begins as saving a life but turns into a new struggle to redeem his boyhood mistakes and find a way to be good again.
