Summary
Sonita has been a refugee for her entire life. Born in a refugee camp in Pakistan, Sonita had never seen her family's homeland of Afghanistan--until, faced with discrimination in Pakistan and possible deportation, her parents decided to return. But despite the end of the war, Afghanistan is not the home Sonita's parents and sister remember. Sonita must adjust to life in a homeland she has never known, and work hard to survive and thrive in a country still full of conflict and insecurity. Interwoven with facts about the conflict in Afghanistan, Sonita's story gives a look at the experiences of Afghan refugees forced to return to a home that no longer exists
