Editorial Reviews

Review

"The story of a former Lost Boy of Sudan is really a journey, one that takes Lopez Lomong from his life as a 6-year-old boy in a refugee camp to a whole new world as a teen in the United States. How he gets to America is an amazing story, but even more amazing are the new wonders and possibilities of his new life here. Brandon Hirsch’s narration focuses on all the emotions of the loquacious Lopez—especially fear, incredulity, and pride. As Lopez—an exceptional athlete and a devout Catholic—writes of his struggles and accomplishments, Hirsch’s narration is always right there with him. As a team, they’re like two runners on an even pace around a track, never breaking stride and waiting for that final kick."

About the Author

Lopez Lomong was born in 1985 in Kimotong, Sudan. He was naturalized as an American citizen in 2007, and graduated from Northern Arizona University in 2011. He continues to train for the Olympic games and spends the rest of his time doing work through the Lopez Lomong Foundation, improving the lives of other innocent casualties of the Sudanese Civil War.
