In The Breadwinner there is a girl named Parvana. She lives in Afghanistan in Kabul with her mother, two sisters and her brother Ali. Parvana is eleven years old. Parvana had another brother named Hossain he got killed in a landmine. The Taliban arrested her father because her father got educated in England so they arrested him. Parvana turned into a boy because her father got in prison so she needs to save the family to get some money because in Afghanistan a women should go with a men or else the Taliban will do something bad to you. Parvana is suffering from the Taliban because they kill some people for no reason. There is this new person named Ms. Weera she is helping parvana’s family to be in peace and to get Parvana’s dad out of jail.
Deborah Ellis took the book’s plot in Afghanistan, Kabul. It makes you feel as if you are there because she write’s really good at writing good words and choosing good words and, she says things really effectively that’s really good. The main characters are believable because it is a real life story and the author is good at choosing good words. The story is interesting. I do not know anyone like Parvana . I like the way of the author’s writing style because the way she says words and explains it’s really good. I like the book so much.
I liked the part when her father comes back home and iI also like the part where Parvana is caring for a family when she turns’ as a boy. I liked the book because; usually books do not include realistic things that happen in real life. I would recommend to my family.The age group could be above 12 years old. I found the book okay not so bad or good because the book is pretty good and it has a lot of violence like the Taliban and killing people but it is really realistic.
