When she was seven years old, Farah Ahmedi stepped on a land mine in her native Afghanistan, losing one leg and suffering severe damage to the other. After two years in a German hospital, Farah returned to war-torn Afghanistan, but after losing most of her family, she and her mother fled to Pakistan. Four years later, they wound up in the U.S., thanks to a refugee relief group. And now, at age 17, Farah Ahmedi is a bestselling author. Hers is the book that viewers of ABC's "Good Morning America" voted for, in what's been called the most ambitious and all-inclusive search ever conducted to discover and publish an extraordinary life story.
