Sobre o livro
The image of Samia Yusuf Omar running for last place at the 2008 Beijing Olympics will forever be imprinted in the minds of those who saw it: the lean Somalian, in leggins and a baggy T-shirt, came in seconds behind her competitors. What the cheering crowd couldn't know was what it took to get there. This book follows her attempt in London to represent her country again. Kleist pictures her training in one of the most dangerous cities in the world, her passage through Sudan into Libya and her fateful attempt to reach Europe. By telling the story of one remarkable woman, he gives voice to the thousands of migrants risking their lives daily for a better future.
