Rating: ★★★★½


The Breadwinner is a realistic book. The major theme of this story is violation of human rights. In this story the antagonist is the Taliban, who are the men that kill other people and do other bad things. The protagonist is a girl named Parvana, who is the main character in this story. Here are some important relationships in the story, the first one is Parvana and Shazia, the second relationship is Parvana and her sister Noria, the third relationship is Parvana and her family then the last one is Parvana and her special dad.

The author Deborah Ellis made me feel like I was there inside the book. Out of ten I would give her a five because not in all the parts she made me feel like I was there. Someone who is like Parvana is there’s a book about Malala you should read the book too. The book Breadwinner is a book that takes place in Kabul a city in Afghanistan. In this book the main characters are believable because if you tell someone like Paravana something that is true she will believe you because she is very believable. I like how the author writes because she is very descriptive. It also makes me like the book more because she gave me more ideas of what to write about.

I found the book very interesting because it made me feel very happy of where I live. I would recommend this book for ages 9 and up because the smaller kids might be scared of the parts that have blood in them. Here are some quotes that the characters said here’s the first one is the part when Parvana said “I can read that letter” so as father too and the second one is also when Parvana said “I am Malala” because her father was reading a book.
