This novel was well written and had believable characters. I loved this book and couldn't put it down! For those familiar with Persian culture, this book quite accurately shows what life may have been like for the characters. It is not neccessary to be familiar with Persian culture to love this book. This book is the story about the hard life of a poor girl who has to overcome a lot. But with hard work, determination, and talent she gains self respect and admiration from others. I highly recomment this book. PG 13 rating in parts.
