Strength, courage, and perserverence .These three things are what push Parvana to finding her family. This book is well written and quickly consumes the reader.

I think this was an amazing book filled with action from beggining to end. It teaches you of a childs life without a mother or father, ACTING like a mother and father.

she closed her eyes and imagined a cool, green valley, like the one her mother's family came from, only better and brighter than te way her mother had described it.
