My Name Is Parvana

My Name Is Parvana (Paperback)

By Ellis, Deborah

She heard the woman's boots walk away down the hall. She stood and waited, listening hard to see if the boots would come back. When she was sure she was alone, the girl finally spoke. 'Yes,' she whispered. 'My name is Parvana.' Fifteen-year-old Parvana has built a new life with h...er family, and it's the life she's always dreamt of. She's learning in a real school, and teaching too. But this is Afghanistan, and the war is far from over. Many still view the education and freedom of women with suspicion and fear. And that means Parvana - and her family - are in danger. When she's taken away by American soldiers, suspected of being a terrorist, Parvana must find a way to protect her family, and keep her hope alive.
