Uprooted Book Description:

NEBULA AWARD WINNER • HUGO AWARD FINALIST • “If you want a fantasy with strong characters and brilliantly original variations on ancient stories, try Uprooted!”—Rick Riordan “Breathtaking . . . a tale that is both elegantly grand and earthily humble, familiar as a Grimm fairy tale yet fresh, original, and totally irresistible.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review) NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY NPR • BuzzFeed • Tordotcom • BookPage • Library Journal • Publishers Weekly Agnieszka loves her valley home, her quiet village, the forests and the bright shining river. But the corrupted Wood stands on the border, full of malevolent power, and its shadow lies over her life. Her people rely on the cold, driven wizard known only as the Dragon to keep its powers at bay. But he demands a terrible price for his help: one young woman handed over to serve him for ten years, a fate almost as terrible as falling to the Wood. The next choosing is fast approaching, and Agnieszka is afraid. She knows—everyone knows—that the Dragon will take Kasia: beautiful, graceful, brave Kasia, all the things Agnieszka isn’t, and her dearest friend in the world. And there is no way to save her. But Agnieszka fears the wrong things. For when the Dragon comes, it is not Kasia he will choose. Praise for Uprooted “Uprooted has leapt forward to claim the title of Best Book I’ve Read Yet This Year. . . . Moving, heartbreaking, and thoroughly satisfying, Uprooted is the fantasy novel I feel I’ve been waiting a lifetime for. Clear your schedule before picking it up, because you won’t want to put it down.”—NPR

Uprooted Book Description:

How a journey of self-discovery unearthed the scandalous evolution of artificial insemination By his forties, Peter J. Boni was an accomplished CEO, with a specialty in navigating high-tech companies out of hot water. Just before his fiftieth birthday, Peter’s seventy-five-year-old mother unveiled a bombshell: His deceased father was not biological. Peter was conceived in 1945 via an anonymous sperm donor. The emotional upheaval upon learning that he was “misattributed” rekindled traumas long past and fueled his relentless research to find his genealogy. Over two decades, he gained an encyclopedic knowledge of the scientific, legal, and sociological history of reproductive technology as well as its practices, advances, and consequences. Through twenty-first century DNA analysis, Peter finally quenched his thirst for his origin. ​In Uprooted, Peter J. Boni intimately shares his personal odyssey and acquired expertise to spotlight the free market methods of gamete distribution that conceives dozens, sometimes hundreds, of unknowing half-siblings from a single donor. This thought-provoking book reveals the inner workings—and secrets—of the multibillion-dollar fertility industry, resulting in a richly detailed account of an ethical aspect of reproductive science that, until now, has not been so thoroughly explored.

The Time of the Uprooted Book Description:

Gamaliel Friedman is only a child when his family flees Czechoslovakia in 1939 for the relative safety of Hungary. For him, it will be the beginning of a life of rootlessness, disguise, and longing. Five years later, in desperation, Gamaliel’s parents entrust him to a young Christian cabaret singer named Ilonka. With his Jewish identity hidden, Gamaliel survives the war. But in 1956, to escape the stranglehold of communism, he leaves Budapest after painfully parting from Ilonka. Gamaliel tries, unsuccessfully, to find a place for himself in Europe. After a failed marriage, he moves to New York, where he works as a ghostwriter, living through the lives of others. Eventually he falls in with a group of exiles, including a rabbi––a mystic whose belief in the potential for grace in everyday life powerfully counters Gamaliel’s feelings of loss and dispossession. When Gamaliel is asked to help draw out an elderly, disfigured Hungarian woman who may be his beloved Ilonka, he begins to understand that a real life in the present is possible only if he will reconcile with his past.

Her inspirational journey of breaking through despite all obstacles certainly lets readers vicariously experience her joy, sorrow, regrets, hopes, dreams, goals, disappointments and success. Dahis artfully weaved narratives provide young adult learners the opportunity to become personally enmeshed in the stories, but most importantly, it creates a space where students can feel free to relate, relive and learn. ___ Nancy Ramirez, Associate Professor Khetam Dahis journey from Syria to America was definitely fascinating, heroic, and intriguing. Bravo to her and her family for moving forward even though many obstacles got in the way. Her story is very inspiring. ___ Dr. Linda Elias Dahi, in her republication of Uprooted, accurately portrays the fears, joys, excitement, and triumphs of an immigrant to America. She gives a first-hand, unique picture of the difficulties of learning a new language and culture. The exercises in the book will also aid ESL students in recounting their own personal stories and growing as second-language readers and writers. ___ Nathan Warner, Associate Professor Khetam Dahis book, Uprooted, is a journal of her emigration from Syria to the United States, which comes straight from the heart. Her story compels readers to reminisce about their own initiation into a new and strange culture. Her personal anecdotes bring emotions to the surface. The reader is able to relate to the universal loss of childhood innocence to the jolting realization of an entirely new, sometimes frightening and sometimes hilarious, foray into the future. Khetams adventures assist students of all ages and backgrounds in comprehending that while cultural adjustments may be painfully jarring, such difficulties can be common to all people in such circumstances. Her story is evidence that success can be achieved through a sprinkle of good luck along with diligence and perseverance. ___ Arleta Roberts, 25-year teacher of English language students and a life-long learner

His book - humane and highly professional - will capture and hold the interest of many: the academic, the practitioner and the general reader.
