Booklist Description (PUT BLURBS FOR BOOKLISTS HERE): 

This Booker Prize finalist depicts the increasingly troubled life of a nine-year-old boy in Tripoli, Libya ten years after the Khadafy revolution.   Suleiman’s idyllic summer with his friend Kareem turns increasingly ominous as it becomes clear that both boys’ fathers are involved in anti-government activities.
