Term 3 Book Report



Parvana is an inspiring true story based on a young girl, Parvana, making life-changing decisions while living in Afghanistan. She does not approve of the government and the inequalities she is forced to live under. Parvana has to dress as a boy to make a living for her family. The reader goes on a journey with Parvana, Shauzia and many more real life characters.

Parvana’s life is changed drastically when her father is arrested and taken away. With a household full of girls there is no one to buy food and make a living for the family as only men and boys are permitted outside the house. This is when Parvana has to risk her life out on the streets dressed as a boy. Will anyone find out?…

Pick up this glorious book to feel a mixture of emotions. It will be like your heart is on a roller coaster. At times it is a ‘feel good’ story about family, and other times, a heart wrenching story of loss and need for a better life. This story will transport you to the city of Tabah as an eleven year old tries to make her mark on the world.

For me, this was a fantastic book. I could feel the character’s joy and pain. I would definitely recommend this to a friend; 5 out of 5 stars. The only flaws for me were the ‘cliff hangers’ at the end. There were so many unanswered questions. But I guess that’s always why there is a sequel. Parvana is now one of my favourite books.

This was a fantastic tale told by Deborah Ellis and I can’t wait to read the sequels. It’s a great read and an eye opener to life in Afghanistan.

Copy and paste the questions onto new page on your iPad. You can complete the book report on your iPad or on a separate piece of lined paper.
This page will be included in your book report. Highlight each section as you complete it.
  1. The title of your book. (and a photo of your book)
  2. Your name at the top of the page.
  3. The author of your book.

You need to include who they are, what were they like (personality), what role they played in the book and what you personally thought about the character (whether you liked them or not).  Set out the information under a heading for each character. You may like to decorate the headings and present them in an attractive way.
  5. The setting: You need to write in detail about the setting of the book. Where did the story take place? What were the places like? What kind of environment did the story take place in. (You may need to describe more than one setting if your story took place in more than one area). Find a paragraph that describes a place from the story. Take a photo of the text and include it on your page.

  9. Recommendation: You need to convince someone to read this book. Write down the things you would say to encourage a friend to borrow this book from the library and read it. Think about what made the book enjoyable, whether it made you need to keep turning pages to find out what happened.
