This book is about what life is really like for an Afghan Girl during the war. Find out what this girl ahs to go through just to save her family. Suddenly you will realize, that you are pretty lucky right now.
Fantastic! This is not just a kid's book. It describes what life can be like in a country where women are considered property and what life is currently like in many of the middle eastern countries. This book can generate more discussions than any teacher or parent could think of. This is the best of the trilogy, but all three are worth reading.
