The stories of Omed and Hec, two young men who can’t and won’t speak. Omed is an Afghan trying to escape the Taliban. Hec is an Australian trying to escape his memories. The first two parts are the boys’ stories up until their late teens, and the last part is Hec’s journey, as an adult, to find Omed. While this is a good book, it really didn’t move me the way I thought it would. Three colleagues have read it and loved it.
