    The second book telling of a young girl living in Afghanistan during the control of the Taliban, Parvana s Journey is an incredible yet haunting novel of resilience and hope.

    i enjoyed this story, though at most points it was really sad these three children had to live off the streets and had to be careful of the land mines placed everywhere

    I ve been reading this book off and on since school began Sometimes I m just not able to take the casual brutality being related Parvana s Journey clearly illustrates the indifference of war.I read The Breadwinner a few years ago because I was looking for something for my preAP students to read I want them to learnabout what life is like outside of the United States I want them to learn that life in the US is so easy so we ought not take it for granted.Then I was told that parents I ve been reading this book off and on since school began Sometimes I m just not able to take the casual brutality being related Parvana s Journey clearly illustrates the indifference of war.I read The Breadwinner a few years ago because I was looking for something for my preAP students to read I want them to learnabout what life is like outside of the United States I want them to learn that life in the US is so easy so we ought not take it for granted.Then I was told that parents had protested The Breadwinner Some were protesting because they had family serving in Aghanistan others were disturbed by the way life in Afghanistan was portrayed others were afraid that middle schoolers are too young to understand the Taliban and the way women are treated in Afghanistan.I believe The Breadwinner, Parvana s Journey, and Three Cups of Tea ought to be read by American teens, especially those we expect to be leaders They ought to learn about life outside their small spheres.And so ought their parents

    This was the 1st book I read when I was in primary school and since then I realised I would readbooks as I enjoyed reading this one.

    This is a continuation of The Breadwinner and the comments I made on that book apply equally to this book The break in the story was well placed but I feel they both must be read as a single story I think too much is left out if only one is read.The author leaves the reader with a very pleasant occurrence in the middle of unpleasant things as she brings this part of the story to a close I was still left with the feeling of a cliffhanger at the end but I know I may have to wait a long time for This is a continuation of The Breadwinner and the comments I made on that book apply equally to this book The break in the story was well placed but I feel they both must be read as a single story I think too much is left out if only one is read.The author leaves the reader with a very pleasant occurrence in the middle of unpleasant things as she brings this part of the story to a close I was still left with the feeling of a cliffhanger at the end but I know I may have to wait a long time for the real ending as the story is still going on in Afghanistan I hope I live long enough and that the ending is better than I expect This is a story that must be read I realize that it s one of many but it must be included I m sure it s going to be included in a handful of stories that never leave my mind for very long The third book, Mud City that follows Parvana s friend, has been ordered I ll have that in a week or so

    JourneyAs a whole I hate journey stories because that is usually the whole story In this case it is a journey that has a purpose, but there is no long term goal Except to be in Pairs in 20 years Good, well researched book Now on to the next book in the series.

  9. Akash says:

    Amazing book The sequel to the breadwinner is equally as good I look forward to reading the next one
