In Parvana’s Journey, the Taliban still control Afghanistan, but Kabul is in ruins. Parvana’s father has just died, and her mother, sister, and brother could be anywhere in the country. Parvana knows she must find them. Despite her youth, Parvana sets out alone, masquerading as a boy. She soon meets other children who are victims of war — an infant boy in a bombed-out village, a nine-year-old girl who thinks she has magic powers over landmines, and a boy with one leg. The children travel together, forging a kind of family out of sheer need. The strength of their bond makes it possible to survive the most desperate conditions. Royalties from this book will go toward an education fund for Afghan girls in Pakistani refugee camps.

It was a good book in my opinion. I liked it because it had more awesome stuff than other books of breadwinner. but sometimes it got slow as the sequence of the book

In this sequel to the Breadwinner, Parvana sets off on a journey to find her Mother. She meets other children along the way and they work together to survive in the war torn desert.
