“CALL NUMBER: FIC HOS
The Kite Runner tells the story of a young boy named Amir who lives in Kabul, the capital of Afghanisan. Amir’s mother died during his birth and he often deals with the guilt he feels because of it. He lives only with his father and has a friend named Hassan, the son of a servant. Hassan and Amir are described as passing time by the telling of stories and kite running. Bullied and isolated in their own world, the boys create a strong bond. One day, while kite running, Amir witnesses something that not only shocks him, but tests his character.
Battling with himself and dealing with the takeover of the Taliban, Amir deals with not only remorse, but experiences and overcomes challenges along the way that will forever change his life. It’s a book that tears at your heart and one that you’ll never forget.
