Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Zaki is a long distance runner. But now he’s in the care of his psychiatrist who believes that his patient can only come to grips with the terrible events in which he was involved by writing about them. Slowly, reluctantly, Zaki begins to open up and examine his life, family, and friendships…especially his relationship with Deon. Zaki’s journal is a fascinating account of adolescent friendships, the struggle for individuality, and tragic loss.
