Gripping! An emotional story of betrayal and redemption. The book tells the story of two friends, Amir and Hassan, in Kabul. They are not of the ‘same class’ or have received the same education but they are friends regardless. Kite running leads to a disaster between them and then war breaks out in Kabul. Amir an his Baba (father) flee to America. Amir marries. Baba dies. A phone call arrives that turns Amir’s childhood on its head.

What will he do?

Will he ever redeem himself?
