Zulaikha hopes. She hopes for peace, now that the Taliban have been driven from Afghanistan; a good relationship with her hard stepmother; and one day even to go to school, or to have her cleft palate fixed. Zulaikha knows all will be provided for her--"Inshallah," God willing. Then she meets Meena, who offers to teach her the Afghan poetry she taught her late mother. And the Americans come to her village, promising not just new opportunities and dangers, but surgery to fix her face.

Loved this book

I listened to this from a free download and wanted to share it with our library customers. The narrator Ariana Delawari was excellent. It's about an Afghan girl with a cleft palate and what she has to endure. An great book for teens and young adults. (some mature content)
