A heartbreaking novel, inspired by a true story, about a Somali girl who is willing to sacrifice everything to fulfill her dream of becoming a champion runner.

LITTLE WARRIOR is based on the life of Samia Omar, a girl who grows up in war-torn Somalia determined to be a world-class sprinter. She sleeps with a photo of Mo Farah by her bed, trains hard despite the violence and prejudice around her, and makes the national team.

But with the war encroaching on their family, her sister is forced to make the treacherous journey to Europe by boat. Samia, scared for her life and for her dreams, decides to join her, which means putting her life in the hands of traffickers…

Winner of the Premio Strega Giovani Prize in Italy and sold in over a dozen languages around the world, LITTLE WARRIOR is a timely, inspiring and moving story about war, family and hope, for readers of THE KITE RUNNER, PERSEPOLIS and THE OTHER HAND.
