About This Book
The first book in Deborah Ellisís riveting Breadwinner series is an award-winning novel about loyalty, survival, families, and friendship under extraordinary circumstances during the Talibanís rule in Afghanistan.
Eleven-year-old Parvana lives with her family in one room of a bombed-out apartment building in Kabul, Afghanistanís capital city.
Parvanaís father ? a history teacher until his school was bombed and his health destroyed ? works from a blanket on the ground in the marketplace, reading letters for people who cannot read or write.
One day, he is arrested for the crime of having a foreign education, and the family is left without someone who can earn money or even shop for food.
As conditions for the family grow desperate, only one solution emerges.
Forbidden to earn money as a girl, Parvana must transform herself into a boy, and become the breadwinner.
The 15th anniversary edition includes a special foreword by Deborah Ellis as well as a new map, an updated authorís note, and a glossary to provide young readers with background and context.
All royalties from the sale of this book will go to Canadian Women for Women in Afghanistan. Parvanaís Fund supports education projects for Afghan women and children.
