Mud City

Mud City

Book three in the Breadwinner Trilogy finds fourteen year old Afghan refugee Shauzia struggling to survive on the streets of Peshawar. She has disguised herself as a boy to be free to roam the city in search of food and the occasional chance to earn some money. But her dream is still to find her way to France. This is a gritty tale of life as a girl or a young woman in the culture that forbids females to be educated and limits their opportunities at every turn. Shauzia is not a complacent, docile young woman and watching her refusal to be cowed and discouraged makes for a riveting read. Ages 9-13
