Description

Fourteen-year-old Razaq Khan lives in the Pakistani tribal area of Kala Dhaka, Black Mountain. When an earthquake devastates his family home, Razaq’s dying father tells him to travel to his uncle Javaid. A man preying on orphans lures Razaq to the city with the promise of finding his uncle. But it is not long before Razaq realizes he has not been helped at all—he has been sold into slavery. Losing hope while in captivity, Razaq meets Tahira, a young girl suffering just like him. Razaq feels a surge of something new–love. Author Rosanne Hawke delivers a heart-wrenching story about friendship and sacrifice and the power of the human spirit, a mountain wolf’s spirit, to overcome sexual exploitation, the most harrowing of circumstances.
