Short description/annotation
Fifteen-year-old Parvana has rebuilt her life after being reunited with her mother and sisters. But suspicion and fear towards the education of women have put them all in danger. When Parvana is held at an American army base in Afghanistan, suspected of being a terrorist, she must protect her family at all costs.
The fourth book in the internationally bestselling series that includes The Breadwinner, Parvana''s Journey and Mud City. In this stunning sequel, Parvana, now fifteen, is found in a bombed-out school and held as a suspected terrorist by American troops in Afghanistan. The army major thinks she may be a terrorist working with the Taliban. Parvana does not respond to questions in any language and remains silent. As she waits for foreign military forces to determine her fate, she remembers the past four years of her life. Reunited with her mother and sisters, she has been living in a village where her mother has finally managed to open a school for girls. But even though the Taliban has been driven from the government, the country is still at war, and many continue to view the education and freedom of girls and women with suspicion and fear.

I really felt Parvana''s sense of danger and how she felt about being separated from her family. I think this book is suitable for all age groups although its topic is quite serious
