Tween Tuesday and a Reading Challenge

Tween Tuesday was started over at Green Bean Teen Queen as away to hightlight awesome books for the 9-12 year old set. AKA Tweens. Any book highlighted on Tween Tuesday does count for the In the Middle Reading Challenge.

This week I'm taking a reading challenge from KarenLibrarian. She has a fun site where she posts random reading challenge.  Her latest is to tell about the book you're reading in pictures.  The book I'm currenlty reading is a tween book, so I thought I'd combine the two.  To see the full explanation of the challenge go HERE

My tween book is Shotting Kabul by N.H. Senzai.

My first picture is a picture of Kabul.  The family in the story seeks asylum because they are fleeing Kabul fearing persecution. 

My second picture is of a brother and sister.  In the story Fadi's youngest sister is separated from the family as they flee the country.  They are unable to find her and must go to the United States without her.

I've included a camera because Fadi deals with some of his stress by taking pictures.  These pictures play a large role in the book. 

The Barbie is because his little sister had a Barbie she treasured.  The memory of this Barbie is very hard on Fadi.

This picture is of crying because there is a lot of sadness at the beginning of the book.

Lastly I did this picture.  While reading this book I'm learning a lot of Kabul, the culture, what happened in its history.  I'm also learning a lot about Muslims.

There ya go.  My latest tween read.  I'll be finish this book and writing the review within the next few days.
