"The Youth of God is a story about love, and how the lack of embodied love can starve a young person's ability to make choices in their best interests. It is a painful reminder of the immense vulnerability of promising third-culture kids who navigate a double exile. While nominally a work of fiction, The Youth of God should be read as a cautionary tale of what can transpire when at-risk youth are allowed to slip through the cracks." --Quill and Quire, starred review "In writing The Youth of God, Santur has carved a space within what is an expanding canon of Somali literature written in European languages?Santur eloquently depicts various struggles of the Somali diaspora that cut across generations, genders, and geographies as he simultaneously humanizes but does not justify a radicalization that transcends borders." --Africa Is a Country "A brave novel that lays bare the complexity and pull of extremism." --Broken Pencil Magazine "The Youth of God is a great accomplishment. It's a community's story of war, immigration and the constant preoccupation with finding safety. Santur manages to do what only great novelists can do: tell a harrowing tale with nuance, grace, and a lot of compassion. Each character is complex, each person's story comes with many layers. I couldn't put it down." --Kagiso Lesego Molope, author of This Book Betrays My Brother
