A ball is a toy that erases all differences between kids. Wherever in the world, a child running behind a ball feels the same joy and excitement.
But when the game is over, everybody faces her own reality.
On one hand, we see a town near the Silicon Valley, where luxurious cars are traveling on the streets and children have all possibilities of the world. On the other hand, there are children living in cities weary of years long wars somewhere in the Middle East, facing poverty, hunger and bombs. It is difficult to believe they all belong to the same world, but they do.
This book was dedicated to all children victims of war and to Aylan Kurdi, whose lifeless body was washed ashore on the Aegean coast. It is a narration of the injustice in the world.
