Breadwinner book review By: Aaron S. 🙂

This book is about a young girl and her family who live in Afghanistan. She struggles with the oppression of the Taliban rule. The major themes in this book are violence and human rights, double standards, egalitarianism and inequality. Pravana and her siblings try to
fight to get out of the “Taliban rule.” Parvana has a good friendship with a girl Shauzia.

The action took place in Kabul the capital of Afghanistan. The author used descriptive words to make me feel , lit up my attention. Parvana is like Malala by being brave taking risks for her family and she did that because I was impressed the author made it real its based on a true history when the Taliban ruled Afghanistan. They had a few people helping them so they can survive and be happy so they can live. These people contribute by helping others
that can’t afford food and water and goods to survive.

I found the book interesting and a little bit disturbing due to the graphic descriptions the author made. I give this book a 9/10
because it did not go the way i wanted to be I thought it would be “problem,” middle
solution. But it was a different way so that’s why I gave it 9/10.Parvana was helping others
by giving them food.In the book I found crulness and gun fireings.
