Overview

Based on a true story, this compelling novel tells an incredible tale of courage, resilience and hope, about a Sudanese boy who survives civil war, a treacherous journey and many years in a refugee camp before finding peace

Obulejo's name means "trouble tomorrow" in the Ma'di language, and there is plenty of trouble for 16-year-old Obulejo when his town is attacked by Rebel troops. Separated from family and close friends, Obulejo flees into the hills and makes a terrifying journey, full of danger from wild animals and pursuing soldiers. Once across the border in a refugee camp, he is safer but has no future—until he joins a pioneering peace education program and begins to find ways to create a more hopeful life for himself and others.
