Parvana's Journey | [Deborah Ellis]

Parvana's Journey

The Taliban still control Afghanistan, but Kabul is in ruins. Parvana's father has just died, and her mother, sister, and brother could be anywhere in the country. Parvana knows she must find them. Despite her youth, Parvana sets out alone, masquerading as a boy. She soon meets other children who are victims of war - an infant boy in a bombed-out village, a nine-year-old girl who thinks she has magic powers over landmines, and a boy with one leg.

Publisher's Summary

The Taliban still control Afghanistan, but Kabul is in ruins. Parvana's father has just died, and her mother, sister, and brother could be anywhere in the country. Parvana knows she must find them. Despite her youth, Parvana sets out alone, masquerading as a boy. She soon meets other children who are victims of war - an infant boy in a bombed-out village, a nine-year-old girl who thinks she has magic powers over landmines, and a boy with one leg.

The children travel together, forging a kind of family out of sheer need. The strength of their bond makes it possible to survive the most desperate conditions.

Royalties from this book will go toward an education fund for Afghan girls in Pakistani refugee camps.

    "Another Compelling Listen"
    What made the experience of listening to Parvana's Journey the most enjoyable?

    The continued story from The Breadwinner. It was heartfelt, plausible and very engaging. Myself and my 2 girls, aged 10 & 12, would definately recommend this listen.


    Any additional comments?

    Having listened to The Breadwinner first then Parvana's Journey, we were initially disappointed that the new narrator did not use the same pronunciations as in the first, however that distraction did not last long. She too spoke clearly and well paced and with clear and consistent characterizations.
