The Breadwinner by Deborah Ellis is a great book about a girl named Parvana tries to make all of the money for her family in Afghanistan because her dad was taken to jail by the Taliban because he had owned books. Parvana can only make money and work in town if she dresses up as a boy because boys are treated better in the Middle East. One day Parvana was on a street when a Taliban member walks up to her and reaches into his coat pocket and gives her a note and it says that the soldier lost his wife and always cries about it. Then, Parvana realized that even Taliban soldiers have love in there heart and that she should still worry about her dad and care for everybody. Then, she and a girl from school named Shauzia made a business where they would sell cigarettes and gum. That business does very well.
