Starvation or survival - a girl's life under Taliban rule

Reviews

'It answers the question; "What's it like to be an Afghan child?" It makes it clear that Afghans aren't the enemy, that children all over the world hate helping with the washing up, whether they are starving or not. It allows children to draw their own conclusions about why we are fighting. Most importantly, it humanises the war . . . it deserves to become a bestseller . . .' * The Daily Telegraph *
'Very remarkable and highly topical. The horrors of life under the Taliban are balanced by loyalty, courage and hope. Read it.' * Independent on Sunday *
'I was gripped by this series and couldn't drag myself away from it. Ellis beautifully captures childhood in war-torn Afghanistan and Pakistan. The stories are very moving.' * Malala Yousafzai *
'All girls [should read]: "The Breadwinner," by Deborah Ellis [...] I think it's important for girls everywhere to learn how women are treated in some societies. But even though Parvana is treated as lesser than boys and men, she never feels that way. She believes in herself and is stronger to fight against hunger, fear and war. Girls like her are an inspiration. "The Breadwinner" reminds us how courageous and strong women are around the world.' * Malala Yousafzai *
'An eye-opening experience for readers who are not acquainted with such a difficult reality' * Exploring Possibilities, Teacher Academic Forum *
