Summary
Documents how a fourteen-year-old Iraqi boy sought refuge with an army unit in exchange for information that led to the capture of Iraqi insurgents, in an account that describes the boy's losses of his family and his fight to move to the U.S
Summary
In December 2003 at a checkpoint near the Syrian border, a small 13-year-old Iraqi boy walks up to a group to American soldiers. His father, the boy says, is a powerful local insurgent leader. The boy, dubbed Steve-O, wants to help the Americans, even if it means losing his family forever. His father is eventually arrested, his mother presumed killed by rebels. And Daniel Hendrex vows to find Steve-O a home in America so he will not meet the same deadly fate
