Waking up in the aftermath of a terrorist attack, 13-year-old Jamal sets out to find out why the rules he grew up with no longer apply and how he fits into the new world that he finds himself in. The Ghosts & Jamal is an original and compelling novel, exploring prejudice and exploitation as well as friendship and hope. Faith, violence, and societal attitudes towards disability form a thought-provoking backdrop to this story of immense bravery, exploring how we face our fears as we learn to do what is right. Jamal holds up a mirror to violence-driven societies everywhere. While trying to evade capture by his attackers, Jamal tries to piece together what has happened. Will he survive his quest to find out who or what is responsible for the death of his family?"@en ;
