Summary:
At five years old, Saroo Brierley got lost on a train in India. Unable to read, write, or recall or his own last name, he survived alone for weeks on the streets of Calcutta before being transferred to an agency and adopted by a couple in Australia. Despite his gratitude, the author always wondered about his origins; one day, after years of searching, he found what he was looking for and set off to find his family. This is an inspirational true story of survival and triumph against amazing odds.
