Description-

  • That was where she needed to be, in a field of purple flowers, where no one could bother her. She would sit there until the confusion left her head and the stink of the camp left her nostrils.

    Shauzia has a dream. She dreams of getting away from the refugee camp in Pakistan 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...

About the Author-

She lives in Ontario, Canada.

Reviews-

  • AudioFile Magazine The final book in Ellis's BREADWINNER trilogy is the story of Shauzia, a young Afghani refugee in Pakistan who dreams of freedom. Meera Simhan's narration brings to life the harshness of existence for refugees. She gives 13-year-old Shauzia a believable voice, filled with the self-centeredness of a young person who is trying to exert her independence and cling to her dreams of a better life. Simhan's narration reflects Shauzia's growth as she develops into a young heroine who learns the importance of community. An author's note gives historical context to the story and provides the listener with sources through which to lend aid to Afghani refugees. N.E.M. (c) AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
