El pan de la guerra

Breadwinner Series: Book 1

Deborah Ellis

Parvana es una chica de once años que vive en Kabul, Afganistán, durante la época del gobierno de los talibanes. Cuando su padre es detenido, su familia –sin recursos para poder vivir-, buscará una solución desesperada: Parvana, que por ser mujer tiene prohibido ganar dinero, deberá transformarse en un chico.

El pan de la guerra es un libro duro y realista que habla, con humanidad y fuerza, de la supervivencia, la familia, la amistad, la intolerancia y la guerra.
