Description - Parvana: a Graphic Novel by Deborah Ellis

'All girls [should read] Parvana by Deborah Ellis.' - Malala Yousafzai, New York Times
'A story of courage and heroism to inspire young people everywhere.' - Angelina Jolie

This beautiful graphic-novel adaptation of the Academy Award nominated film, inspired by Deborah Ellis's beloved novel, tells the story of eleven-year-old Parvana.

When soldiers burst into her home and drag her father off to prison, Parvana is forced to take responsibility for her whole family, dressing as a boy to make a living in the marketplace of Kabul, risking her life in the dangerous and volatile city.

By turns exciting and touching, Parvana is a story of courage in the face of overwhelming fear and repression. Readers will want to linger over this powerful graphic novel with its striking art and inspiring story.
