really liked it

This book is located in the juvenile section of many libraries, but it may be more appropriate for young adults and even adults in my opinion. It is a good book to recommend to your more mature young readers. The book is set around a young girl in Pakistan who lives a nomadic life. The beginning of the book is a little slow moving, but it becomes more dramatic as the story continues. It really makes you empathize with a culture where girls are forced to grow up quickly and marry young. My heart followed Shabanu as she had to decide between the life she wanted to leave and the life she must leave to protect her family.
