9780142424063: The Secret Sky: A Novel of Forbidden Love in Afghanistan

A novel of love during a time of war by NBC's Afghanistan correspondent. Set in present-day Afghanistan, this is the story of two teenagers, one Pashtun and one Hazara, who must fight against their culture, their tradition, their families, and the Taliban to stay together. Told in three rotating perspectives - the two teens and another boy in the village who turns them in to the local Taliban - this novel depicts both the violent realities of living in Afghanistan, as well as the beauty of the land and the cultures there. And it shows that love can bloom in even the darkest of places. This is an absolute must read not just for teens but for anyone who has lived during the time of America's War in Afghanistan.
