Editorial Reviews

A great kids' book...a graphic geopolitical brief that's also a girl-power parable.

— Newsweek

...hands-down, Newberry Medal worthy...This was a fantastic read.

— Washington Times

...a book...about the hard times - and the courage - of Afghan children.

— Washington Post

...an exceptional story that enlightens the reader about circumstances beyond comprehension and helps students understand that all of us in this global community share the same hopes, dreams, and fears.

— Resource Links

Deborah Ellis would like to tell kids in war-torn countries that the war is over and they can live through this and that she hopes the world can learn from its previous mistakes

— The Denver Post

This is an important and compelling story for young people...

— Today's Librarian

[The books in the Breadwinner trilogy] are terrifying indictments of what war can bring to children and a powerful testaments to the ingenuity and strength of young people in times of terror.
