Imagine that your house has been destroyed by bombs, your friends have fled or been killed, your mother, sister and little brother are missing, and today you buried your father... This is the reality for Parvana, who sets out alone to walk across war-torn Afghanistan in search of her family. Parvana's Journey is the riveting story of a young girl's talent for friendship, hope and gritty determination despite the ravages of war. Sometimes shocking and sad, always compelling, this novel takes an honest, compassionate look at the situation in Afghanistan, and the courage and resilience that can keep children afloat even in the most terrible circumstances.

For children aged 12-16 years.
