Since the Taliban took over Afghanistan, 11-year-old Parvana has rarely been outdoors. Barred from attending school, shopping at the market, or even playing in the streets of Kabul, the heroine of Deborah Ellis's engrossing children's novel The Breadwinner is trapped inside her family's one-room.  Now her dad is captured and she has to do the familys shoping.


The Breadwinner is a book that was foretelling of the world as we know it today.  This insightful and personal look at the changes in society as there is a change in the power of the region is not only educational but chilling.  Read this book and think of your own life compared to Parvana.
