When Conor Grennan volunteered at the Little Princes Children's Home in war-torn Nepal, he grew to love the rambunctious children who challenged and rewarded him. But when Grennan learned the truth, he was stunned: The children were not orphans at all. Child traffickers were promising families in remote villages to protect their children from the civil war—for a huge fee—by taking them to safety, and would then abandon the children far from home, in the chaos of Kathmandu. This is the story of Grennan's commitment to reunite children with their families—a monumental task that took him through the mountains of Nepal, facing the dangers of a bloody civil war and a debilitating injury.
"Grennan’s work is by turns self-pokingly humorous, exciting, and inspiring."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
