Parvana Book Review

  “Parvana” By Deborah Ellis Illustrated by Associated press 1996

Have you read the book “Parvana”? I have, I think it's very interesting and a great
book over all.  “Parvana” is a fiction and contemporary fiction
(a thing that could be happening now)book because this could be happening to
any family in the world right now.

This book has many settings.
The first one is  Afghanistan with the bright sun shining down on a ginormous market,
with stands and tea shops with lots of people running around with food and items.
There are also broke down houses and buildings from giant bombs that have been
dropped onto the town. The second setting is in the house of Parvana and her family the
house has a high window painted over.

The story starts out with Parvana and her Dad walking in the market and sitting down in
there mat in the market later on her dad gets dragged out of there housse by tibilen gardes
and taken to jail. Parvana needs to step up in her family.  She cut her hair shorter and
changes her everyday clothes to look like a boy so she can go shopping and sell items for
money so they can live.

The message I got from the book was that life was strict.
Only boys and men were allowed out on the streets alone and had to do the shopping
and get the water for the family.

My opinion of this book is that this is a good book because it's describing what is
happening in other countries that we don't think about as much as the richer countries.
I also understood that this could happen that any moment in life no matter where you live.
