There are many types of battle in Afghanistan.
Imagine living in a country where women and girls are not allowed to leave the house without a man. Imagine having to wear clothes that cover every part of your body, including your face, whenever you go out. This is the life of Parvana, a young girl growing up in Afghanistan under the control of an extreme religious military group.
When soldiers burst into her home and drag her father off to prison, Parvana is forced to take responsibility for her whole family, dressing as a boy to make a living in the marketplace of Kabul, risking her life in the dangerous and volatile city.
Nice book, 3/5!
This book has real emotion with someone as one person and another at the same time. The Taliban is sexist to women and women deserve more. Parvana sacrificed her true self for another for her family to survive when Parvana's father scarecly was taken away and beaten by the Taliban. This was an amazing book of love, shatterings, persitence, sorrow, surprise and there's unexpected things round every corner, almost. I love this book and can't wait for the next book.
I thaught that this book had a great story line and it kept me interested and I always wanted to read more. The story was a sad story because of the things that where happening around parvana and the Taliban and what effect the Taliban have on Afghanistan. And how life was when the Taliban where Not their and what life is like now that they are their. I think the Taliban have made life wheres but the thing I don't understand I's why the afghans don't like are soldiers. But over all I think this book would be great for anybody wanting to read a interesting book that will ceep you interested. And that will teach you a lot about what is happening in Afghanistan and how it is effecting the people of Afghanistan. I thought that the best thing about this book is its not about what the soldiers or the Taliban think I like that it is the veiw of a afghan person and that's what I like the most about this book.
This book was very catching, consuming and importantly, interesting. Parvana is a book about a little girl's fight to survive in Afghanistan. This book is based on true events which makes it seem even more realistic, but this book isn't a one trip pony, there are twists and turns in the book which makes partly unpridictable keeping you reading, wanting to know what happens next. But what I think is one of the greatest things about this book is there are parts where it isn't all action, but what almost seems like every day family problems in parts of the book.
I would reccomend this book from Year 3 to Year 6 or even to anybody who wants a great read.
I rate this book a 4 out of 5.
This book is about an Afghan girl called Parvana. It was amazing to see all the differences and similarities I had with the characters in this book. One major difference was that girls in Afghanistan was that girls weren't aloud to go to school because of the taliban, but in Australia all girls and boys can go to school. I loved this book and as soon as I finished reading it I wanted to read the next book. This book really got me thinking about how many children were involved in war and how terrible it was for them. I really enjoyed this book and I would highly recommend it.
I enjoyed the read of Parvana, but the type of book is not my kind of style. Parvana is a very moving story, about a girl living in Afghanistan in the time when the Taliban had control over the whole country.
Her dad got taken from their family because he had gone to England and studied when he was younger, and the Taliban wanted everyone to do things their way, and going to another country and doing something their was not what they wanted. Parvana and her mother set off to the prison to get their father back, but they were bashed and sent back to their house. Parvana's mother was so tired and payed in the same place for days. Parvana dicided to go and work for their family, and bumped into one of Parvana's old school teachers. Mrs Weera came back to Parvana's house. Mrs Weera came up with a idea, to dress Parvana up as a boy and work for her family. On Parvana's first day at work she saw one of her old school friends. Parvana recognised her strait away and she recognised her to. They both became great friends again, and they started their own business.
I would strongly recommend this book.
