About the Author
Read an Excerpt
From the foreword by Katherine Paterson:
I'd been eager to read this book ever since Trent first told me he was going to try to write it. And he has done in Zulaikha exactly what I hoped he would do. He has given me an Afghan friend for whom I care so deeply I cannot read a news report without wondering how what has occurred is affecting her life... I am profoundly grateful for an introduction to a land and culture that are foreign to me through this beautiful and often heart-breaking tale of one strong and compassionate girl. She will live on in my heart and, I feel sure, the heart of every reader of this fine book.
