Reviews

"Like its young protagonist, One Half from the East dances between hope and hard realities. Obayda's struggle to define herself in a world that is all too eager to do the job for her is captivating." -- Cassie Beasley, author of Circus Mirandus "Told in clear, vivid prose that combines detailed descriptions of daily life with a good dose of adventure, this story... This is an excellent title that will offer students a window into life in Afghanistan and open interesting, age-appropriate conversations about gender expectations and roles in different countries." -- School Library Journal (starred review) "By focusing on gender inequality as seen through the lens of a traditional society, Hashimi lets readers see themselves in Obayda's emotions, even as the outcomes remain true to the Afghan culture Hashimi portrays so fluently." -- The Horn Book "The first-person point of view in this novel will be impactful and meaningful to readers. Hashimi's Obayda will provide readers with insightful information about Islamic culture, and particularly the Afghani culture, as it relates to girls." -- Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA) "With beautiful language, rich characters, and a perspective not often seen in children's literature, this heartbreaking story will leave a lasting mark." -- Booklist
