520    "Since its publication in 2000, hundreds of thousands of 
       children all over the world have read and loved The 
       Breadwinner. By reading the story of eleven-year-old 
       Parvana and her struggles living under the terror of the 
       Taliban, young readers came to know the plight of children
       in Afghanistan. 
520    But what has happened to Afghanistan's children since the 
       fall of the Taliban in 2001? In 2011, Deborah Ellis went 
       to Kabul to find out. She interviewed children who spoke 
       about their lives now. They are still living in a country 
       torn apart by war. Violence and oppression still exist, 
       particularly affecting the lives of girls, but the kids 
       are weathering their lives with courage and optimism: "I 
       was incredibly impressed by the sense of urgency these 
       kids have - needing to get as much education and life 
       experience and fun as they can, because they never know 
       when the boom is going to be lowered on them again." 
520    The two dozen or so children featured in the book range in
       age from ten to seventeen. Many are girls Deb met through 
       projects funded by Canadian Women for Women in Afghanistan
       (, the organization that is 
       supported by royalties from The Breadwinner Trilogy. 
       Parvana's Fund provides grants toward education projects 
       for Afghan women and children, including schools, 
       libraries and literacy programs."--pub. desc.
