Fereiba & her kids must flee Afghanistan once the Taliban takes control & murders her husband. This is a cross continent story of them trying to get to her sister in London. When her son, Saleem is separated from her she must leave him behind to save her newborn who needs medical help. I liked it being told from Saleem & Fereiba‘s perspective but I do wish Saleem‘s wasn‘t in 3rd person, took me out a bit. Liked the ambiguity of the ending tho.

Enjeela was growing up in a well-off family in Kabul when the Soviet Union invaded. The family had to flee but was fragmented in the process, with Enjeela and three of her siblings going by foot over the Hindu Kush to Pakistan. This is an extremely interesting story and gets an A+ for that, but the writing is a bit juvenile. (It reads in places like a children‘s book.) Also, the audiobook isn‘t great.

I‘m sure many #alphabetgame participants will choose this book, and I‘m no exception. It is beautifully written, deeply moving, and it taught me a lot about Afghanistan. #letterk @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks

I didn't have many titles beginning with the letter “K“ to chose from, but I suspect The Kite Runner would have been my top choice anyway.

Teach perseverance with a global perspective - hard topics like homelessness and landmines. Pajama press includes an extensive teaching guidehttps://pajamapress.ca/wp-content/uploads/2022/01/ASkyBlueBench_TeachingGuide.pdf

Kids today are calling this image an Easter egg - the illustrator included an image of another book by the same author. Now I have another book to read! #afghanistan

Hosseini rises to the daunting challenge of following The Kite Runner with a grim but ultimately hopeful story of two women's lives in a patriarchal society.
