Darcey Rosenblatt - Lost Boys — in the Children & Teens Dept.

Tuesday, September 19, 2017 at 7:00 pm

At once a difficult and uplifting read, Lost Boys provides an important message about hope. Inspired by the classic novel Persepolis, Lost Boys presents a twelve-year-old boy’s attempt to make sense of war. Readers unfamiliar with the Iran/Iraq struggle of the 1980s will learn about the conflict by getting to know Reza. In his world, the wartime rhetoric of glory and power does not match the desperate and tragic reality. Reza will enter a POW camp, suffer abuse, make enemies and allies, escape through music, and search for his dearest friend. It is a tale of the head and the heart. Ages 11-13
