this book was for summer reading and i thought it was an O.K. book although i wouldn' have read it if i wanted to.

I am commenting for my 9yr.old son who had to read this for a book club selection. His comments are: For those of you who like reading, I would highly recommend this book. It is not boring, it has a good storyline. I learned Afganistan boys can't write to American girls!
