About The Book
Based on the true-life stories of women in Afghan refugee camps, The Breadwinner is an engrossing novel that delves into the harsh realities of life for girls and women in Afghanistan under Taliban rule. Eleven-year-old Parvana and her family have rarely been outdoors for a year and a half. No longer can she or her siblings attend school or play outdoors. The family's situation becomes perilous when Parvana's father is taken away to jail. It is then that Parvana is forced to take on the responsibility of being the breadwinner for her small family. Disguised as a boy, Parvana goes out to the marketplace each day to offer her skills as a reader.
