Can she persuade them that it is a good idea?Razia falls asleep every night dreaming of going to school like her brothers Jamil and Karim.
So when she learns that a girls' school is being built just down the road from her home, she is filled with hope... This is a compelling story of one girl's aspirations to go to school in Afghanistan during the Taliban regime.
It is a moving account of how she finally persuades her father and older brother to let her go.
