    Eleven-year-old Parvana lives with her family in one room of a bombed-out apartment building in Kabul, Afghanistan's capital city during the Taliban rule. Parvana's father- a history teacher until his school was bombed and his health destroyed- works from a blanket on the ground in the marketplace, reading letters for people who cannot read or write. One day he is arrested for the crime of having a foreign education, and the family is left without someone who can earn money or even shop for food.

    Lorna McLaughlin says: "Sad story! Had to get used to the British accent!"
    "School project"

    Any additional comments?

    I needed to read this for my Global History class and then tie it in with a study of modern Afghanistan. Being able to listen to the book while reading it helped me to understand all the different points being made.
