The Story of My Life: An Afghan Girl on the Other Side of the Sky recounts an epic journey. It deftly interweaves a childhood in Afghanistan, where the classrooms are naked chambers with only chalkboards on the walls, with an American adolescence, where teenagers struggle to decide whether to try out for school plays and where to go to college.
Thanks to a number of good people who crossed her path at critical moments, Farah is thriving. She is actively enjoying the realization of her childhood dreams. Farah is living proof that not only can the human heart endure, it can also thrive. The Story of My Life is our new great American memoir.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading about this brave, independent young woman. It gave me a better view of how life was in Kabul and what life is like for children living amongst war. One cannot help but like and admire Farah. I always ask myself whether a book would be better to read or listen to. The advantage of listening to this book is hearing the narrator's pronounciation of afghan words.
