Publisher Comments:

Farah Ahmedi's "poignant tale of survival" (andlt;iandgt;Chicago Tribuneandlt;/iandgt;) chronicles her journey from war to peace. Equal parts tragedy and hope, determination and daring, Ahmedi's memoir delivers a remarkably vivid portrait of her girlhood in Kabul, where the sound of gunfire and the sight of falling bombs shaped her life and stole her family. She herself narrowly escapes death when she steps on a land mine. Eventually the war forces her to flee, first over the mountains to refugee camps across the border, and finally to America. Ahmedi proves that even in the direst circumstances, not only can the human heart endure, it can thrive. andlt;iandgt;The Other Side of the Skyandlt;/iandgt; is "a remarkable journey" (andlt;iandgt;Chicago Sun-Timesandlt;/iandgt;), and Farah Ahmedi inspires us all.
