Format: Paperback
Although I found Parvana's Journey as strong and well written as The Breadwinner, I was left feeling wrung out and emmotionally exhausted by the end of the sequal. Parvana is beset with the most debilitating experiences from the first page to the last. While her experiences in the Breadwinner were harrowing, difficult and sometimes demeaning, there existed in the first book a sense of hope for change and a belief in the deligence of the characters to bring about better conditions for themselves. These qualities are lacking in the second book. Although I understand the importance of presenting realistic situations in junior fiction and that attention to this part of the world is necessary, I felt the tone of the second book was overall depressing.

Captivated me completely. I loved the characters and they were brought to life beautifully. I wish it had continued on after finding her mother or perhaps there is going to be a sequel.

The book Parvana's Journey is a pretty good book.It is a little
vilont and very sad. Lots of people die or suffer. There are
some funny parts and some exiting parts.Very few are happy.There is alot of redemtion.
The book is about Parvana and her journey. She walks around trying to find her family. The seting of the book is Afghanistan. She is dressd like a boy.
She meets lots of people. She meets a baby whose town was bombed and his mother was killed. Parvana names him Hassan.
She also meets a boy who lives in a cave.He had no leg. His named is Asif.
Parvana meets a girl named Leila.She lives with her grandmother .They live close to mine fields.
I would recamend this book to people who like sad books.It is very interesting and you can learn alot about people who live in Afghanistan.
This is a pretty good book.

It all started one day when parvana's dad died .Some people told parvana you could live with us.So she went. After a few days she left . She found a baby in a house. She called him Hassen.After she found a boy. His name was Asif. After she met a girl named leila.she has a grandmother.But she died.Asif does not like parvana.Hassen always cries.Leila even cries because she misses her grandmother. This book is a very good book.I really liked this book because it has a lot of tragic parts in it with some funny moments. I really liked the adventure and the stuff that the children went through. I was especially interested that the setting was Afghanistan.I liked it also because the cover looks cool.And i like it because it is telling about my country.
