Synopsis

Synopsis

‘My life is dust and rocks and rude boys and skinny babies, and long days of searching for my mother when I don’t have the faintest idea where she might be.’

Parvana is alone. Her father is dead. A refugee in a land full of dangers, she must travel across Afghanistan to find her mother and sisters.

As she travels, Parvana finds friends — a starving, orphaned baby; a strange, hostile boy; a solitary girl who darts in and out of the minefields to find food.

Perhaps, with their help, she may one day be reunited with her family...


From the Compact Disc edition.
