Two versions under one cover! Novice High (written in 1st person singular and past tense) and Intermediate Low (written in 3rd person singular and past tense).

What if we could UNsee an event? What if we could UNexperience a tragedy? For 14 year old Brayan that would mean an end to his fear and paranoia and the return to his home, friends and family. Unfortunately, what Brayan has witnessed has left him alone and fleeing for his life. Will the hope of a better life far beyond the borders of Guatemala be enough to keep him safe?

This is the true story of Brayan’s struggle for survival and his quest to rebuild a new life after losing everything.
