Summary
"A coming of age story about one boy's journey across contemporary Afghanistan to find and bring home the family dog. Twelve-year-old Marwand's memories from his previous visit to Afghanistan six years ago center on his contentious relationship with Budabash, the terrifying but beloved dog who guards his extended family's compound in Logar. Eager to find an ally in this place that's meant to be "home," Marwand approaches Budabash the way he would any dog on his American suburban block--and the results are disastrous: Marwand loses a finger and Budabash escapes. The resulting search for the family dog is an expertly told adventure, a 99-night quest that sends Marwand and his cousins into unexpected confrontations with American soldiers, to a wedding where they must go undercover, and across Logar."--
