Certainly the tale of a very brave, strong girl. She endured incredible hardship & pain, both physically and psychologically, at the hands of radicals including the taliban. The story is very much told from a completely different perspective than westerners recognize. I was pained throughout at the repression of girls & women. Girls not allowed outside their compound walls, child marriage, girls and women being required to cover up, to not go out without a male escort, then fleeing alone after the men have been killed or gone missing, having to fear for their lives simply because they are women traveling without men. (Very minor spoilers ahead.) Then just when we think we may be coming to the happy ending, reaching America, we see fear and isolation due to the total unfamiliarity with our culture. The lack of understanding of the extent of freedom they had upon arriving really hits you. It makes you really appreciate the freedoms we all have regardless of race, sex, or religion. To see a young person assimilate enough to be able to take full advantage of her American dream, with so much hard work, was truly inspiring after the horrid hell she had to fight through. I suggest if discussing this book with young people to focus on not only the hero's triumph through sheer determination and hard work, but also the aspect of taking advantage of the chance each person has to succeed in America.

This book is perfect for my high school students. It exposes them to a global world, with global issues from the perspective of a peer. Farah's is a story of faith, determination, and hope. I highly recommend it.

Farah Ahmedi gently places stirring incites throughout her story about life both in Afghanistan and in the United States. Having served with the United Nations in Afghanistan I observed many of the conditions she describes. They are so very real and poignant, they give us pause when we see day to day occurrences in both cultures through her eyes.
