A great read for English speaking children over the age of 12 but also for adults. Thoroughly enjoyable; wonderful characters, an inspiring storyline and lots of cultural details about everyday life under the Taliban regime. Suitable for learners of English as a foreigner language: niveau B1 / B2
Excellent story seen from the point of view of two young girls under the Taliban in Afghanistan then during the American war . 3 other books complete the story of these two very brave little girls. Amazing. Geared towards a young audience, it is highly readable by all.
This book kept my daughter who is only 11 totally engaged. She loved it and found it very interesting. It awoke great interest for the situation in Afghanistan and girls' issues. It didn't take her long finishing, she hardly could put it down.
Roman assez court mais prenant. Des personnages bien campes et attachants. L auteur a su faire ressentir au lecteur l atmosphere du recit et les sentiments du personnage principal dont on a envie de lire les autres tranches de vie.
