The Breadwinner
By Mo

The Breadwinner is a fiction book and the major theme is about no human rights, family, almost no egalitarianism. The Breadwinner is a little girl named Parvana who tries to keep her family together and raises money by dressing up like a boy.
The story happened in Afghanistan. It felt like I am a character in the book because the way book is written by author.All characters in the story seems realistic because they were presented like real life of Malala.I am not aware of anyone like parvana.I like the part of book where the author mixed bad and good events. For example, the man was nice to Parvana when he allowed her to go when the hands being cut off badly by Taliban.I like the way how the author describes each character. The author is good in describing scenarios and mixing them up. The parts that moved me when Parvana and Shazia entered in the stadium and saw the scenes of hands cut off, and also when Parvana’s father got captured by Taliban.
I thought the book is great because it had mixture of bad and good moment at the same time and drama. For example, father released from jail of Taliban and one of Parvana’s big problems solved.The book is also consist of examples of courageous and bravery. For example, when Parvana and her friend dressed up like a boy to raise money and show courage for their families. I highly recommend this book to read for everyone age of 8,9,10.
