Summary
Hekmat - 'Matt' - is a 12-year-old war refugee who finds himself unexpectedly transported to what he describes as a 'glittering kingdom of nonsense': the United States of America. As Matt struggles to acclimatise to his new life, he discovers that the scientist father of the family that has taken him in is working on 'de-exctinction' - a crazy idea to bring extinct species to life, experimenting first with the family's dead pet, a crow named Alex
Summary
The story of Ariel, a Middle Eastern refugee who lives with an adoptive family in Sunday, West Virginia, is juxtaposed against those of a schizophrenic bomber, the diaries of a failed arctic expedition from the late nineteenth century, and a depressed, bionic reincarnated crow
