Genre: realistic fiction
Blurb: Aman lived in Afghanistan in his cave in a small village called Bamiyan peacefully and was bored of being alone with his parents.
And one day, he found a dog, a springer spaniel, outside his cave. He decided to keep him and soon they became good companions.
But one day, some Taliban came to Bamiyan and killed Aman’s father and many other people. Aman and his mother decided that it was time to leave Bamiyan and take Shadow, their dog companion, with them.
I chose this particular book because I found the story very emotionally touching.
What I enjoyed about this book is the fact that it is very realistic and the story is told in a very elaborate way.
I recommend this book to people that enjoy emotional types of books, slightly cruel and grieving.
