Shauzia is Parvana's friend from The Breadwinner. Now Shauzia has fled from Afghanistan, to a refugee camp in Pakistan.
But Shauzia has a dream. She dreams of getting away from the refugee camp and travelling to France.
There she knows she would find a better life, away from the war in her home country of Afghanistan.
But escape is not so easy. Once she leaves the camp, she has no money, no food - and only her dog Jasper for company.
But Shauzia is determined to find a new future for herself.
This is another deeply moving story from Deborah Ellis, which casts light for readers on the ongoing human situation in Afghanistan.
