I read this book a couple weeks ago. It was great. One of the best books I've read in a while. It's about 2 boys that grow up together in Afghanistan before the Taliban rule. I don't want to ruin the book in case someone reads this and wants to read the book. I know a lot of people aren't in to reading so here's something for them. They also made it into a movie. I'm not sure if it's subtitled or not...you'd have to find that out yourself but if it's anything like the book it's worth a look. I know it might sound really boring and all that but it's not. The 2 boys are from 2 different backgrounds, one rich, one poor. They are best friends until something absolutely horrible happens but there is somewhat of a happy ending. It's a great book. Check it out!
