Reprint. Originally published: Toronto: Groundwood Books Ltd., 2012.

In post-Taliban Afghanistan, fifteen-year-old Parvana waits for foreign military forces to determine her fate.

Reunited with her mother and sisters, she has been living in a village where her mother has finally managed to open a school for girls.

It's the life Parvan has been dreaming of. But this is Afghanistan, the war is far from over, and many continue to view the education of girls and women with suspicion and fear. And that means Parvana - and her family - are in danger.
