It tells a story of Parvana who built a new life, a life that she always dreamt of, learning and teaching in a real school and leading a happy life with her family but then she was taken away by American soldiers, as she was suspected of being a terrorist in Afghanistan. In the hopes to protect her dreams and family, Parvana must travel alone across Afghanistan in the midst of war to find her family. The books tell the story of young Parvana and her friends in pursuit of protecting their loved ones and finding freedom and salvation in the ongoing war happening in Afghanistan. Ellis intended for her story to shed light for readers and the continuing tragic events happening in Afghanistan and the diabolical treatment of people. You can experience the real struggles within the characters from lack of food and shelter, and having Parvana dressing up to pretend to be a male in order to leave the house to buy food as women are not permitted to leave on their own in areas following Taliban law.
