The book the Breadwinner is a book about a family living in Kabul, Afghanistan. Parvana is the main character in the book. She dresses up as a boy so that she can earn money to feed her family. Then, one day she meets another girl named Shauzia she also dresses up as a boy . She works so that her family can have food on their table. The author writes okay. It is true that the punishment of stealing under the Taliban is cutting off a hand. I don’t like this book because it has violent parts. I would recommend this book for kids over 12.
