The Bubble Kids, by Chowdhry, is an eye-opening tale of youthful heroism. Though set in post-9/11 Pakistan, the book addresses the good vs. evil challenges driven by cultural beliefs, poverty and geography that affect us everywhere in the world, in some manner or form on a daily basis.
The story begins on the day the World Trade Center was attacked. Told from the Pakistani perspective, young boys Omar, Ali, and Sher go about their lives in culturally different ways, but with the heart and soul common to all children..
However everyday life is upset even further when strange men, who turn out to be Taliban, move from Afghanistan into the area where the boys live. As the adults' and children's talk turns to the political and religious events of 9/11, it is clear that there are vastly differing opinions on what happened.
Drawn into a life-threatening situation instigated by the Taliban, the children are tested to their limits-and one must rise above them all to save his family and friends.

About the Author
N.Chowdhry is originally from Pakistan. Having traveled and lived in many parts of the world, she has had the opportunity to observe children in many different cultures. She believes that for the greater part, children anywhere in the world share similar moral values and innocence; free of biases at that young age, they have the power to change our world for the better.
After the events of 9/11 occurred, Chowdhry gained a unique perspective on the inner conflicts that were evoked within her fellow Pakistanis during this challenging period and how they chose to deal with it. She began to write the young adult fiction novel The Bubble Kids, an inspiring story about young Pakistani kids affected by terrorism.
