Boyhood escapades that rival Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn are part of everyday life along with more daring deeds and just-in-time Houdini-like escapes. The survival skills Sam learned as a boy during the 1975 Lebanese civil war and the 1982 Israeli invasion served him well during the second chapter of his life as he pays the consequences for making the world look at what was happening in Beirut whether they wanted to or not.As a young boy navigating the streets of Beirut, Samuel looks in awe at all that is happening around him.

With great tenacity he continues to go to school, work a summer job, and play soccer with his friends even as shells rain down and missiles fly overhead. His adventures are often harrowing and many times humorous as he and his family are always in survival mode, bags packed and headed for the bomb shelter at a moments notice.When the situation becomes too dangerous for Samuel, his father sends him to Virginia to live with relatives.

Again, he is in awe of all he sees around him and constantly compares life in his adopted city of Richmond to his life in Beirut. Frustrated that his friends and others in the United States do not seem to understand the destruction taking place in Beirut, he makes a desperate decision that changes his life forever.
