In Parvana's Journey, the Taliban still control Afghanistan, but Kabul is in ruins. Parvana's father has just died, and her mother, sister, and brother could be anywhere in the country. Parvana knows she must find them.Despite her youth, Parvana sets out alone, masquerading as a boy. She soon meets other children who are victims of war -- an infant boy in a bombed-out village, a nine-year-old girl who thinks she has magic powers over landmines, and a boy with one leg. The children travel together, forging a kind of family out of sheer need. The strength of their bond makes it possible to survive the most desperate conditions.

    " Parvana's Journey had a bigger impact on me as a 12 year old than it did when I read it this year at 16 years old. I guess different ages, different experiences. It still brought up emotions for me, but they weren't as strong as they were a couple of years ago. When I first read this all those years ago, I couldn't believe that people actually live the life that Parvana lives. I can remember crying when Leila is killed by a landmine. This time around, I guess because I've had some experiences with death and I'm more wordly, it wasn't as much of a shock that this happens, despite the fact that the idea of war doesn't sit right with me. It's a good read. An honest look at how things are in Afghanistan. "
