Editorial Reviews

Review

"Bay Area writer N.H. Senzai, who based her first novel in part on her husband's family's escape from Soviet-controlled Afghanistan in 1979, has a warm, engaging style that belies the subject matter. She keeps the story firmly through Fade's eyes. He is a middle-schooler, plucky but not precocious, struggling to adjust to his new life in America, stricken by guilt about his sister, worried about his ailing mother, but still a boy."--"Sandip Roy, San Francisco Chronicle, July 01 2010".

"an ambitious story with much to offer: a likable protagonist in Fadi, an original and engaging plot and a lens through which readers will learn much about the current conflict."--"Kirkus"

"In N.H. Senzai's debut novel, worlds collide and a little sister is lost. Can her big brother find her from half a world away? At the same time, how can he find himself and restore his honor in a land that is both foreign and home? Turn the pages. Find out." --Kathi Appelt, author of "The Underneath", a 2009 Newbery Honor book

"Senzai has brought a whole new world to life for young readers. It is a world they won't soon forget."--Reza Aslan, author of "No god but God"

"The hero of SHOOTING KABUL starts life in the United States as a foreigner, but by the end of the book, young readers will be cheering for Fadi as a good friend." --Mitali Perkins, author of "Secret Keeper"

“Senzai has brought a whole new world to life for young readers. It is a world they won't soon forget.”—Reza Aslan, author of "No god but God"

“The hero of SHOOTING KABUL starts life in the United States as a foreigner, but by the end of the book, young readers will be cheering for Fadi as a good friend.” —Mitali Perkins, author of "Secret Keeper"

"Fadi's world is one of strong familial ties, Islam, and a vibrant, strong immigrant community. For all of Fadi's differences from his Fremont, California classmates, he will still seem very familiar to many middle schoolers. The novel allows readers a view of a different culture and provides background for events that still plague us today."--"Steven Kral, VOYA, August 2010"

"Senzai has captured a moment in recent history with enormous grace, skill and emotion. A powerful read." Ahmed Rashid, "New York Times" Bestselling author of "Taliban"
