    However Tall The Mountain

    I read the book because it was the winning choice of a book club. My daughter pushed for this choice. It was not my choice (my choice was "The Kite Runner"), but after reading Awista's book I had to admit that I really enjoyed it. I think it is an excellent choice for pre-teen and teen girls. I purchased the book, after reading a local library copy, for a young lady who had just turned 13. She became familiar with the book at the book club meeting. She read a few pages and showed an interest in it. Knowing she had an upcoming birthday, I made an immediate decision to get her a copy as a present. The strength of the book is it clearly illustrates the "girl's" journeys from learning soccer in Afghanistan and the social struggles they had to endure to coming to America and the impact that experience had on them. It also gives American and other non-Afghan readers insight into life in Afghanistan over the past years. Awista makes her readers care for the girls and their families, because the reality they are not characters in a book they are real human beings dealing with real challenges. Sometimes when I pray for the end of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan I put names to "the innocent citizen's". I pray for the girls by name.
    My only recommendation is that it be recorded on CD. I actually had to read a book (something I have not done in years--I listen to everything in the car on CD). It took me two months. I got over it.
