Abby lives in the flat land of Illinois. She is capable of doing schoolwork. She just doesn’t want to. After her grade gets very low she’s forced to do extra work, and if she doesn’t she will be held back. She then gets a pen pal in Kabul, Afghanistan and starts to write to him. Her pen pal’s name is Sadeed. When she gets a letter back she learns that there were lots of mountains in Kabul. She is delighted because she cannot climb in flat land. She also learns a lot more about Sadeed, Kabuland more about Illinois.

Amazing book with such amazing life lessons. It can be both sad and funny at the same time in a beautiful kind of way. I loved reading this and rooting for the characters because they are so realistic, amazing piece of literature!  View at phoenixpubliclibrary.org
