Short and bitter. It is a tragedy that this didn't age a day.

 This story of Parvana, although fiction, is true in so many aspects. Don't know how I first heard of it, but when I saw it in a used book store I had to pick it up.
Yes, it is a children's book, but it covers subject matters that are beyond just children. Written for children but worth the read as an adult.
