Lion by Saroo Brierley

Lion (Movie Tie-In) - Saroo Brierley

A nice, quick memoir about something that for many small children might be one of their worst nightmares: getting lost and not being able to go home. Five-year-old Saroo unwittingly went so far from his hometown in India, and then went event farther across the world as he was adopted by a couple in Australia. Armed with his childhood memories, advanced technology and a hefty dose of luck, he managed to trace his way back home as an adult. Although some inconsistent details confused me, it's quite a good read that's written in a simple, straightforward manner, which makes it also accessible to a younger audience.
