The story had a historical fiction feel, but yet there were computers and televisions mentioned. I'll admit that I am a sucker for the poor, strong female overcoming huge obstacles type of book.Set in Pakistan it involves customs that are foreign to us. The story started out strong, but I felt the ending was too "pat". This was an enjoyable read, but not a great one. Unfortunately, I will probably not be able to get any students to read this book...they don't seem to be interested in anything "multi-cultural". ( )

A beautiful story about a young girl who has to dress as a boy to find her brother when he was taken away. This is such a short read, but with powerful words packed into every part of it. The amount of courage it would take to do that is tremendous, and I admire the main character for that! ( )
