In post-Taliban Afganistan, American soldiers have just imprisoned a teenage girl. But who is she? Why was she found wandering alone in a bombed out school? Could she be a terrorist?

A bit commfusing in the begin but you will get into the vibe.
this is a really interesting book! and for the fact that its a true story makes it even more interesting than ever before!
It’s a bit confusing in the first chapter because it switches to past and present time just until the past and present become in sync. (thats just one of the beauties of this book)
This is the BEST book ever.
I would recommend it to grede 6 and up.
