Worried about exams? Relationship problems? No money? They don’t have the food you like? Well meet the astonishing book that defines perspective. Khalid Ahmed had been warned by the grocer.

His regret at not confessing his fears to his parents is realised when his dad goes missing. After a fruitless search Khalid finds refuge in the computer game Bomber One designed by cousin Tarig who he idolises. During one particular gaming stint Khalid goes to the toilet and never returns. Captured by the Pakistani police and sent ot the Americans under the suspicion of plotting terrorist acts he is forced to face torture, abuse, hunger, isolation and the horrible depths of his own mind. Kahlid Ahmed’s will to live ends at 15. One of the most controversial books of modern time is created as Perera’s strong views are conveyed with the utmost intensity in this chilling novel. A difficult book for inexperienced readers and an extremely descriptive introduction that may fail to consistently retain the readers attention are the only criticisms in an otherwise excellent story. The powerful message contained within the story will appeal to most and stir a response to the despicable happenings that our world still justifies. A fascinating book that would be recommendable to anyone 13+ as the concepts in the book are difficult and may cause younger readers distress. Anna Perera is breaking down barriers.
