Reviews for Parvana's Journey
Imagine that your house has been destroyed by bombs, your friends have fled or been killed, your mother, sister and little brother are missing, and today you buried your father.
This is reality for Parvana, who sets out alone to walk across war-tone Afghanistan in search of her family.
Parvana's Journey is the reveting story of a young girl's talent for friendship, hope and gritty determination despice the ravages of war. Sometimes shocking and sad, always compelling, this novel takes an honest, compassoniate look at the situation in Afghanistan, and the courage and resilience that can keep children afloat even in the most terrible circumstances. by Sandra
