'Watch what you're doing!' The angry newspaper seller spat at her. He kicked Jasper. Jasper yelped. Shauzia pulled her dog away. I don't like it here, Shauzia told Jasper. Shauzia just wanted to sit some place and be quiet, but every time they sat down they were told to go away. Imagine that you're alone in a foreign city. To eat you must scrounge through rubbish, to sleep you huddle in doorways. Where do you go? Who do you trust? When Shauzia leaves the relative safety of the refugee camp she faces many difficulties. But she has all the spirit and pluck of her friend Parvana, and with the help of her dog Jasper she knows she will fulfill her dreams. Shauzia is a thrilling, thought-provoking companion to the bestselling Parvana, and Parvana s Journey.
