Parvana felt the shadow before she saw it, as the man moved between her and the sun. Turning her head, she saw the dark turban that was the uniform of the Taliban. A rifle was slung across his chest as casually as her father's shoulder bag had been slung across hers...
Eleven-year-old Parvana lives in Kabul, Afghanistan's capital city. Her father works from a blanket on the ground in the marketplace, reading letters for people who cannot read or write. One day he is arrested and the family is left without someone who can earn money or even shop for food.
As conditions for the family grow desperate, only one solution emerges.
Forbidden to earn money as a girl, Parvana must disguise herself as a boy, and become the breadwinner.
