Book DetailsISBN: 9781743312483
The third book in a powerful and moving fiction series about children living in contemporary conflict zones. Naveed is sick of war - of the foreign powers and the Taliban, the warlords and the drug barons that together have torn Afghanistan apart. He's had to grow up quickly to take care of his widowed mother and little sister, making what little money he can doing odd jobs and selling at the markets. When he adopts Nasera, a street dog with extraordinary abilities, he has a chance to help rebuild his country. But will a new friend's betrayal crush his dreams of peace forever? From the winter of war comes the spring of hope.
Author John Heffernan answers some questions on writing his book, 'Naveed', the third in a fictional series about children living in contemporary conflict zones.
