When 10-year-old Abbas arrives in England to start a new life, little does he know that his troubles have only just begun...His cousin packs him off to boarding school, and infrequent phone calls are Abbas's only contact with his beloved mother in Iran.Things get even worse when his cousin threatens him with deportation and Abbas is forced to work through the night to repay his 'debt', finally ending up homeless and living on the streets.Abbas's extraordinary resilience in the face of overpowering odds makes this true story from the internationally bestselling author of On Two Feet and Wings inspiring and unforgettable.
