Johnny Get Your Gun
Narrated by Dion Graham.
This novel is also known as Death for a Playmate and it is the third book in the Virgil Tibbs mystery series, that began with In the Heat of the Night.
In this story, a nine-year-old boy who is lonely after a family move, shoots an older child that has stolen something from him, thus igniting the militant blacks and racist whites of 1960s Pasadena, into a black-white conflict involving riots and brutalities.
Here, childhood has gone awry, racism that ought to shock does not, and political conflicts only adds fuel to the fire.
On Two Feet and Wings
Narrated by the author Abbas Kazerooni
Is the story of a 10 year old boy who is forced to leave his war-torn home to escape Tehran. The Iran-Iraq War is at its bloodiest and the ayatollahs, or rulers of Iran, have reduced the age of recruitment into the army. If Abbas doesn’t leave soon he will have to go to war and he is too young to die.
This terrifying story brings to light the strange and often frightening city of Istanbul that Abbas has had to grow up fast, while living there.
But when he’s living alone for twelve weeks in a rundown hotel, he needs to learn to live by his wits and watch his back. Will he ever get his dream visa to escape to England?
These well narrated stories are about the courage of small boys and they are as gripping as any novel.
