Summary At the age of 14, Mohammed El-Gharani seizes an opportunity to study in Pakistan. While in Karachi, Mohammed is detained during a raid on his local mosque. After being beaten and interrogated, he is sold to the American government by the Pakistani forces as a member of Al-Qaida with links to Osama Bin Laden, but Mohammed has heard of neither. The Americans fly him first to Kandahar and then to Guantánamo Bay. An astounding account of human endurance and faith against overwhelming odds.
