Kek, a young Sudanese refugee, is haunted by guilt that he survived: he saw his father and brother killed, and he left his mother behind when he joined his aunt's family in Minnesota. This debut novel by nonfiction writer Applegate examines an immigrant child's dislocation and loss as he steps off the plane in the snow.
