Perspectives on Iranian Culture and Society

When you're twelve, the end of the world comes in many different forms: it's missing the ball, fighting with your best friend or, for Hany Abdullah Peter Soussa, transferring from a private school to a public one. After a childhood of security and privilege, Hany's idyllic world is disrupted when his father suddenly dies. To cut back from spending more than they could afford, Hany and his mother decide to transfer him from a private school to a public one, where he fits in as comfortably as a sailor does in a desert.
