The Breadwinner Book Review

The Breadwinner is a book about a young girl who lives with her family in Afghanistan. Parvana, the protagonist, is having a lot of trouble because of the Taliban. The major themes within this book are human rights and survival. I think this book was really touchy because when the book was over I felt really thankful for my education and shelter. One part that made an impression on me was this passage, “Here and there, white bones of the long-dead stuck up out of the rusty-brown earth. Flocks of large black and grey crows cawed and pecked at the ground around the ruined graves of the newer section of the graveyard.” This part made me sad for the people who had died because they were disrespected.The Breadwinner Book Review
