The difficult political climate is touched on, but it doesn’t overshadow the admirable efforts of parents and educators to instill a healthy, mutual tolerance, the idea being that the beginning of peace requires separate respectful coexistence.

When war drove twelve-year-old Edi and his family from their home in Kosovo, they fled across the Macedonian border to the Brazda refugee camp, a tent city that housed almost thirty thousand people. There the family shared a tent with more than twenty other people, with no kitchen, no running water, and no school for Edi to attend. Instead he helped out with the younger kids, played soccer with the other boys, and ran errands, such as waiting in the long lines for food and fresh water. Everybody was waiting in Brazda -- for news about relatives, for the war to end, for the day when they could finally go home again.

  • Good condition

  • I cannot recommend, and commend, this book enough. We used it as part of our homeschool social sciences curriculum, but our 10-year old daughter chose the book on her own while browsing through the library. She thoroughly enjoyed the photos and well-written narrative and said she highly recommended it other girls and boys. The personal story of a 12-year old refugee boy and his family is presented in an accurate but still age-appropriate manner; many important aspects of the family's life before and after their refugee experience are presented. Our 10-year old is in 6th grade and has been reading since she was an early 4, and I struggle with the reading level designation as "4-8". Most 8-year olds would enjoy the book being read to them, but I feel would have trouble relating to the story or understanding the refugee issues presented. As a "read alone", I would recommend the book for highly interested 9-year old+ readers and think it is better as an upper middle school resource. TERRIFIC book with a STORY that NEEDED to be written! We'll be looking for more books by this author and photographer team.

  • Ed is a twelve years old boy from Kosova and he is one of the
    numbers out of nearly a million Kosovar refugees!
    This book is his story!
    The author and this book served their purpose but unfortunetaly
    the historical facts are so hugely inaccurate.For example :
    "...approximately 90 percent of the people living in Kosova
    originally came from Albania and only 10 percent came from
    Serbia"
    "I know" this wasn't the author aim but the above statement is just like Milosevic (The Modern Hitler) would want it.
    As a matter of fact, Kosovars and Albanians came from nowhere to where they are now! They've been there when lots of nations didn't have a name let alone something else. It was the Serbs who came from Russia and settled where they are now. Yes, even Serbia is not theirs let alone a part of Kosova as they wish to say.
    If it wasn't for U.S.A. and United Kingdom they would have done
    the same again as they did centuries ago but hey who falls for the same trick twice???
    Ed's story will inspire your children and make them appreciate everything they have in their lives and the first fact that they have everything is that they are Non-Kosovar's to go through all that hell.
