The Kite Runner


...an excellent story which will only cause you to show more tolerance and compassion for all peoples on our earth. I live in a community reflective of a diverse population. Now, as I pass young boys of Middle eastern descent, I am reminded of Amir, Hassan and Sohrab and their commingled lives in Afghanistan. Easy to read and appropriate as a coming-of-age story, this would be a fine choice for high school English classes, much like To Kill a Mockingbird is.

Next in the pile of books to be read..... Burning Bright, by Tracy Chevalier. LOVE her books!
