5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent end to this series, 30 July 2008
This review is from: Mud City (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.
