Amina lives on the edges of Mogadishu. Her family's house has been damaged in Somalia's long civil war, but they continue to live there, reluctant to leave their home. Amina's world is shattered when government forces come to arrest her father because his art has been officially censored, deemed too political. Then rebel forces kidnap Amina's brother, forcing him to become a soldier in Somalia's brutal ongoing war. Although her mother and grandmother are still with her, Amina feels vulnerable and abandoned. Secretly, she begins to create her own artwork in the streets and the derelict buildings to give herself a sense of hope and to let out the burden of her heart. Her artwork explodes into Mogadishu's underground world, providing a voice for people all over the city who hope for a better, more secure future. 'This touching story brings home vividly the dangers of creating art that seeks to be true - and all the more so during a vicious civil war, interwoven with religious extremism. Thankfully, Amina's teenage curiosity and courage also signal hope.' - Beverley Naidoo, author of Carnegie Medal Winner The Other Side of Truth

In 2001, the author of this book suffered a stroke that left him partially handicapped. It became necessary to do what he could to learn to live with the aftereffects and limitations of the stroke. This book is the result of advice from his doctor to write down some of his earlier memories to see if he had suffered any long-term memory loss. In the writing of these memories, he gradually became confident enough to keep on writing until he had enough stories to put together in a book. The writing of the stories has given him back his past, and now he has a base to build his new life on. For him, it has been like opening a new door, and now, rather than be held hostage by the restriction imposed by the stroke, he can confidently build on that past and plan ahead.

"Fourteen year-old Naveed has only even known war. Born into it, living it every day, he’s had to grow up quickly to be man-of-the-house for his widowed mother and little sister. Life is one long battle for him as he struggles to pay rent, put food on the table, and just stay out of harm’s way. But Naveed dares to dream. He’s sick of war – of the Taliban and the war lords and the drug barons and the foreign powers that together have torn his country apart. He dares to dream of peace, of a day when Afghans will say no to hate and revenge, when they will take charge of their own future and begin re-building their country. In one boy’s dream lie the seeds of a nation’s future." --Author's hope page.
