Parvana, a novel by Deborah Ellis, tells a story about a young Afghanistan girl struggling to save her family and friends under very constricted Taliban rules. Parvana throughout the novel breaks the Taliban rules and laws and since those were illegal doings she has to dress up like a boy so that she can get a job to provide for her family and not be imprisoned. Parvana is only an 11-year-old girl and is fighting for her father, family, and friends.
Within the novel Parvana, her and her family come through a series of changes in their lives. Parvana would always assist her father at the market place because he is disabled and only has one leg. Girls are forbidden in the market place and forbidden to leave the house. With her city having so many restrictions and her father being taken into prison, Parvana’s life has become full of heartache.
