This is one of my favourite books I have ever read. The book gives a lot of insight into the Taliban's rule in Afghanistan and the restrictions placed on one and the impact this had on her and her family including her mother becoming severely depressed.

Engaging and surprisingly easy to read. I stayed up all night and devoured this in less than 24 hours. It is told from a somewhat childlike point of view, refreshing and truthful. Sometimes makes you feel like there are parts of the story missing. The story is her own. A good intro to a part of Afghan culture.

A chilling account of a loss of freedom under the Taliban. Interesting to hear the author still so passionate about wanting to eventually go back to Afghanistan to help with rebuilding of this war torn country.
