Description

Imagine living in a country in which 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.

In this powerful and realistic tale, 11-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. As conditions in the family grow desperate, only one solution emerges.

Forbidden by the Taliban government to earn money as a girl, Parvana must transform herself into a boy and become the breadwinner.

Exceptional Listen!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

My 12 year old daughter chose this book and I would recommend to to adults and children alike.

What does Rita Wolf bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?

The vocals were excellent. Great differentiation between characters, clear and concise annunciation.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, myself & my two daughters 12 & 10 listened while commuting 50 minutes to school and it made the drive seem like five minutes long and we all were eager to resume after school. This could have easily been listened to in one sitting.

A Great Read With Your Daughter

I enjoyed listening to this with my daughter - it allowed us the opportunity to learn about another country together and discuss our similarities (pesky siblings!) and differences (too many to list).

Heartfelt Story

To begin with I really loved the reader Rita Wolf. Her distinct tone and style really brings the story to life. I realize now that this is the first book in a series and I feel compelled to continue with the subsequent books. Highly recommend this timely story of hope and hardship!

Excellent story! Very educational!

I listened to it because my son had to do a report on it for class. I learned a lot just like him from listening to it. I will go on and read the rest of the books.

Exciting!

The story is written in a simple style but nonetheless it captures the hardships of a young girl struggling to keep her family alive.

Great story

This was a really good telling of a horrible situation. The characters real in my minds eye. it helps one understand the real horror the country is going thru.
