Exiled is based on a true story about the Camels who were brought to the United States in 1856 from Egypt, as part of the U.S. Camel Corps. They were used to help the army traverse the inhospitable Texan desert and create a new route to California. This cute story is told by a Camel named Ali, and his point of view makes this story come alive; in fact Iím still smiling as I write this because the authorís insights into camel behavior is entertaining and funny. Aliís interaction with the other camels, and the humans that tried to work with them, made me feel like I was there journeying with them. Ali also has a love interest named Fatinah, who is very sweet and his interactions with her makes this a good coming of age story for pre teens to read. There are some life lessons woven throughout the story like self control and getting along with others: and Ali gets his moral direction from the time he spent with his mother, and from what he knows about Allah and the Qurían. Exiled is a childrenís book that anyone can read and enjoy. I loved reading it; and I learned something new about Americaís history in the process. 5 stars.
