This story was taken place in Kabul Afghanistan when the Taliban was in control. The author did a good job making me feel like i was there because the conversation. Yes i like it because she used descriptive words and also in my head when i was reading it felt like i was there. Parvana reminds me of a friend named Connor who never gives up and helps anyone. I like the authors writing style because it leaves you hanging and makes you want to read more.
Part that moved me was the soccer stadium when the Taliban cut of the stealers hands off. It moved me because they should not get there hands cut off they should just get arrested. Another part that moved me is when Parvana dressed up as a boy. It moved me because i would not dress up as a girl to go outside. I like it because because it had good detail and creative. I would recommend the book to my friend because he likes historical books.I would make it readers then and up. I found the book interesting because it had some descriptive words and made me feel like i was there because whrn they talk it felt like they were talking to me. The book was hopeful because I was hoping to make it to Mazor and for mother to return.
