Nd the other efugees is irritating and made me ANGRY THE YOUNG WOMAN S CONVERSION TO ISLAM SEEMED The young woman s conversion to Islam seemed although there is a bit of information about Islam that would be good for discussion pretty thin though compared with ShabanuMay be worth eading since so little is available for young people about women and Islam and the middle east Under the Persimmon Tree is about Najmah a girl of about eleven who watches the Talaban kidnap her father and brother and later her mother and baby brother are killed in an air aid At the same time the story of Nusrat originally named Elaine who is a blonde white girl from New York who met and married Faiz a doctor from Afghanistan Faiz
Hearing About The War 
about the war Afghanistan feels he must eturn home and help his people Nusrat eturns with him and teaches school at a efugee camp in Peshawar Pakistan In alternating chapters these stories are told Najmah s story of traveling toward Peshawar and Nusrat s story of worrying about her husband who is helping his people in Mazar i Sharif Afghanistan and teaching the Der Bilderwächter refugee children There is much discussion of the political climate in Afghanistan during this periodThis book is appropriate for grades 7 12 It could beead and discussed in discussions about the Middle East and Afghanistan in particular When I was eading this book A long walk to Water popped up in my mind Their both so alike in so many ways two points of views and they both intercept child soldiers losing your family but finding them in the end and etc Under the Persimmon Tree eally makes you look at things differently just like A Long Walk To Water Also I like how this book some insight on how people lives are in India or Pakistan This book didn t disappoint me whatsoever and I hope that you get a chance to ead this amazing book.
