This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: Samsaluna, a physically handicapped boy on the verge of adolescence, leaves his broken and abusive home in the foothills of the Zagros Mountains in an attempt to find his uncle in the city of Susa, near ancient Babylon. Befriending a young baker's son and an asu's daughter, Sam soon finds himself on a journey to the lively city of Babylon. By becoming a healer's apprentice, Sam not only learns a valued and respected skill--increasing his prospects and status--but also endears himself to the great asu, earning himself a second chance at being part of a family. But when Sam's past won't stay behind him and his well-intentioned lies come to light, he risks losing it all. Brokenhearted that he has brought about his own downfall and has been abandoned by his new friends, Sam is forced to come to terms with his deceptions. His newfound understanding of justice, according to the code set forth by the great ruler Hammurabi, and the unyielding compassion shown to him by the asu must come into play before Sam can defeat the demons of his past, right his wrongs, and establish himself as the worthy apprentice and son he always hoped to be. Surrounded by the changing times in ancient Mesopotamia, Sam learns to cope with the past and thrive in the present in this coming-of-age middle grade story. Bookseller Inventory #
