Shooting Kabul by N.H. Sensai
Fadi is living in Afghanistan. His father refused to help the Taliban six months ago, and, now his family must leave under cover of night. In the process, his six year old sister, Mariam gets left behind. Fadi has to balance adjusting to life in California while trying to get back to Afghanistan to find his sister. His one interest is photography. When he enters his school photo contest, his hopes and dreams are focused through the lens of an afghani boy adjusting to American culture. I loved this book becaue it provides examples of cultural interactions, both good and bad. This book is appropriate for kids in grades in 4 to 7.
