Publisher's Description

Farah Ahmedi recounts her heartbreaking journey from war-torn Kabul to America in her New York Times bestselling inspirational memoir.

Farah Ahmedi's "poignant tale of survival" (Chicago Tribune) chronicles her journey from war to peace. Equal parts tragedy and hope, determination and daring, Ahmedi's memoir delivers a remarkably vivid portrait of her girlhood in Kabul, where the sound of gunfire and the sight of falling bombs shaped her life and stole her family. She herself narrowly escapes death when she steps on a land mine. Eventually the war forces her to flee, first over the mountains to refugee camps across the border, and finally to America. Ahmedi proves that even in the direst circumstances, not only can the human heart endure, it can thrive. The Other Side of the Sky is "a remarkable journey" (Chicago Sun-Times), and Farah Ahmedi inspires us all.

Editorial Reviews

"Inspiring . . . A wonderful story." -- James McBride, author of The Color of Water
"Very compelling. . . . Here you have a girl, a child, who suffered her own disability, [and] the loss of her family and her homeland. She's taking care of her aging mother and adapting to this new culture, and she's a bright, shining light in the world. . . . Very moving." -- Mary Karr, New York Times bestselling author of The Liar's Club and Cherry
"[The Other Side of the Sky] has that wonderful quality of survival and is most compelling. Seeing Afghanistan from the eyes of this girl provides a deep, rich look that we haven't seen before." -- Mary Higgins Clark, author of thirty-three worldwide bestsellers
"Farah is a tower of strength." -- Heather Mills McCartney

    A sad story but also one with hope that maybe tomorrow things might be better. This girl has more courage and strength -- a wonderful daughter. This book encouraged me to not give up --if Farah can make it so can anyone.
