Summary
Alternating between the stories of Najmah, a 12-year-old Afghan girl, and Nusrat, a young American woman, this powerful, poignant novel depicts the emotional cost of the war in Afghanistan. Nusrat longs for the return of her husband, Faiz, who left to open a medical clinic in Afghanistan. Meanwhile, Najmah, whose mother and baby brother were killed by American bombs, desperately searches for her father and older brother, who were forced to fight for the Taliban. When Najmah and Nusrat meet at a refugee camp in Pakistan, they forge a friendship that reveals the heartbreak and hope of surviving the devastation of war. -- Description by Rebecca Honeycutt
