FC: The Amazing Breadwinner | By Dannna Biello !2-7-10 | The Breadwinner Written by Deborah Ellis

1: To Mr. Hunsicker, my amazing teacher. He's a true star!

2: Just another day in the market. Parvana sits in the market with the women uniform of a burqua and chador.She watches father do his job in the market. When the workday is over the twosome head home.when lounging at home with the family, Mother, Older sister Nooria, baby brother Ali, younger sister Maryam, Father and Parvana. | All women must wear a burqua and chador in Afghanistan.

3: Father has been arrested. The entire family was depressed. Parvana went to the market to get food because the family had run out. When she is there Parvana runs to Mrs. Weera. Mrs. Weera came to live with the family and she has a plan to get the family back on their feet... | This is a prison in Afghanistan.

4: Kaseem. Father's "cousin" that is watching stand while father was away. So that was Mrs. Weera's plan, turn Parvana into a boy. They cut off her hair and dressed in Hossain's clothes she didn't like it at first but she had to do it to keep her family alive. | This is young boy living in Afghanistan.

5: In the end two men find father outside the jail and bring him home. He builds up his strength and they decide to go Mazar to find their family While Mrs Weera goes to live in Pakistan with a cousin in one of the camps. Parvana decided to meet Shuzia 20 years from that day one the top of the Eiffel Tower. | The Eiffel Tower is where Parvana and Shuzia in 20 years.

6: The most important part of The Breadwinner is when Mrs Weera comes to live in the house. She helps get the family back on their feet. She also helps them get Parvana a job for the family. | This is what I imagine Parvana's home looks like.

7: Nooria's getting married. This event really interested me because Nooria is such an independent women. Then the author explains that she is just doing this for her own education and freedom. The entire education would have been paid for also. | This is a picture of an Afghan Wedding

8: The scariest passage in the story is when Parvana meets Homa.She tells Parvana that she had escaped from Mazar after the Taliban had took over. This is frightening to Parvana because her entire family is headed there. If she looses her family in Mazar, she has no one. | This is the city of Mazar when the taliban attacked.

9: In Parvana's Journey I predict that Parvana and Father will go to Mazar to find their family. I also think that mother will have been arresdted for not having a man at her side. | Parvana's Journey Deborah Ellis
