really liked it
Read in February, 2011

Words In The Dust brings to life two young girl's plights in Afganistan after the U.S. invasion. One crippled by a birth defect, the other crippled by the culture. It gives a realistic look at what the Americans do well including medicine and jobs. But it also shows the ways in which their understanding of the culture is lacking and disrespective to the Afghani people. I really enjoyed this book and plan to share it with friends.
