FORGOTTEN FIRE by Adam Bagdasarian

War, death, family and hope.

Heres' A Description:

'In 1915 Vahan Kenderian is living a life of privilege as the youngest son of a wealthy Armenian family in Turkey. This world of comfort and security is shattered when some family members are whisked away and others are murdered before his eyes. In too short a time, Vahan loses his home and family and, to survive, is forced to live a life he could never have dreamed of. Somehow Vahan's incredible strength and spirit help him endure even when he knows that each day could be his last.'

Forgotten Fire by Adam Bagdasarian is in one word, Heart-Wrenching. OK, maybe two words! ;<{)

This book was so beautiful and sad and just great. Its' a fast read, not because its simple, but because you don't wanna put it down. Vahan was such a strong and powerful character and his three year struggle for survival was so real without being overbearing that I could feel and imagine everything he went through.
The book starts off with a serious bang that will already bring tears to your eyes, taking place in the Armenian Holocaust that most people don't know about, I certainly didn't. Though Vahan comes from a rich family he never acts like it and that was great. He witnesses people being murdered, rape and suicide and  still manages to be hopeful.You will want to know what happens next after every page and you will not help but love him and his fire to survive. You will marvel over his subtle, yet powerful journey from a 12 year old boy to a man.

Forgotten Fire will have you thinking about it for days and days after.
