Book Description

4 Mar 2004
Shauzia is Parvana's friend from The Breadwinner. Now Shauzia has fled from Afghanistan, to a refugee camp in Pakistan. But Shauzia has a dream. She dreams of getting away from the refugee camp and travelling to France. There she knows she would find a better life, away from the war in her home country of Afghanistan.

But escape is not so easy. Once she leaves the camp, she has no money, no food - and only her dog Jasper for company. But Shauzia is determined to find a new future for herself.

This is another deeply moving story from Deborah Ellis, which casts light for readers on the ongoing human situation in Afghanistan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent end to this series 30 July 2008
By Lincs Reader TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
The third and final book in Deborah Ellis' series about Afghanistan. Written for young adults but this series is a must-read for adults too.

The first two books in the series - The Breadwinner and Parvana's Journey feature Parvana herself, whereas Mud City is based on Shauzia - a friend of Parvana.

The book opens with Shauzia living in a refugee camp in Pakistan, but she is not happy, she has spent a long time pretending to be a boy and making her own lving - she finds it difficult to adapt to being a female again and being expected to toe the line. The book follows her journey once she leaves the camp, just her and her dog Jasper. There are some heartbreaking scenes, the hardships and injustices experienced by the Afghan people is portrayed very well.

Shauzia is a real character, gutsy and determined. Going with her on her journey, the reader is filled with hope and sometimes despair.

I'd recommend this series to everyone, young or old.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mud City 17 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I don't have much to say about this book. I enjoyed the story itself a whole lot, but I found the ending somewhat disappointing. It's a great read and I recommend it to anyone who enjoyed reading, the breadwinner, Parvana`s Journey and My name is Parvana.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review of Mud City book 15 Oct 2012
By LMC
Format:Paperback
Review of the book `'Mud City''
Mud City is based on Shauza - a friend of Parvana.
The book opens with Shauza living in a refugee camp in Pakistan, but she is not happy, she has spent a long time pretending to be a boy and making her own living - she finds it difficult to adapt to being a female again and being expected to toe the line. The book follows her journey once she leaves the camp, just her and her dog Jasper. There are some heartbreaking scenes.
Shauza is a real character, brave and strong-minded. Going with her on her journey. When she left the camp she has no money and no food for eat.
The book Mud City book was published in 2003. It was written by Deborah Ellis. It is the sequel to the bestselling the Breadwinner and Parvana's Journey.
The reason Shauza wants to go away from the refugee camp because the Taliban were looking for her everywhere and wants her to be killed.
The book of `'Mud City'' the reason I like it because it is a very sad story of a girl who lost and wandering far from her home and family because of the Taliban were looking for her.
Overall: The book was very nice and very good story Witten by Deborah Ellis the credit I will give 10 out of 10
