'Come, Jameela. Stand right here. I need to do something.'
I grab hold of his sleeve. 'Where are you going?'
His face is twisted. He doesn't look at me. 'Never mind.'
Jameela lives with her family in a war-torn village in Afghanistan. Life is hard, but when her mother dies, and her father remarries, Jameela has to face a greater horror. To survive she draws on the strong sense of self that her mother gave her.
Based on a real girl called Sameela, and a real orphanage, this unforgettable novel tells the story of a devout Muslim girl and what life is really like in post-Taliban Afghanistan.
'Jameela is such an intriguing, inspiring character...a beautiful and life-affirming story.' - Randa Abdel-Fattah, author of Does My Head Look Big in This?
The book that I finished reading is called Jameela. The author of this book is Rukshana Khan and this was published by Allen and Urwin.. This was published at March 2010. The setting of the book is basically settled at Taliban-Afghanistan . The characters in the book are Jameela .Soorya and others.
The book was really interesting; it took me into a journey into new world. The bits that was so good when her dad remarries. And bits that wasn’t so good when her mum, died when she was old and how her dad remarries. Also how her country was conflicted by war. .I certainly recommend this book to other people because it beautifully written story about a girl - and a country - struggling to overcome the devastation of war. I think who will like this book will be teenagers. The author of this book Rukshana Khan wrote this book because it talks about Muslim girl how her life was so hard in Afghanistan and letting other people who overcome war in their place. I think authors opinion about of events, is sympathetic .no there is no book that I can compare with. Yes this is really written for particular ages between 10-13 years...
