This story of a long distance pen pal friendship that works on many levels. Both Abby and Sadeed are thoughtfully delineated and very likeable. I was quite moved by the way they connected despite their different cultures and personalities This book shows the reader the contrast between two lives growing up in small town Afghanistan and Illinois. Finally, Abby is a great example to the many kids out there who would rather climb a mountain than read a book. ( )

This is a fantastic story of accepting situations and people for what they are and pushing to achieve goals. Abby finds herself about to be held back if she cannot do better in school and ends up needing an extra credit assignment to bring her grades up. Little did she know that she would be making a new friend in another part of the world! Sadeed is a good student in Afghanistan and is not pleased at the thought of having to help his sister write letters back and forth with a girl in America but soon finds himself looking forward to the letters just as much as his sister.

Abby is going to be held back a grade so she gets an extra credit project where she is a pen pal to a kid in Afghanistan. Sadeed was suppose to be her pen pal but has to do it in secret because of his culture. But in the end both of their cultures have problems so they end up having to stop writing however they come out of this experience with more appreciation on life.

Oops I read this in one day and was sad when it ended. I thought I have another couple of chapters but when she said the farms and green fields were beautiful and I turned the page, it was all over. Great book, especially where 2 parts of the world are compared and contrasted.

It isn’t that Abby Carson can’t do her schoolwork. She just doesn’t like doing it. And in February a warning letter arrives at her home. Abby will have to repeat sixth grade—unless she meets some specific conditions, including taking on an extra credit project: find a pen pal in a distant country. Seems simple enough.

But when Abby's first letter arrives at a small school in Afghanistan, the teacher takes it to the village elders. And everyone agrees that any letters going back to America must be written well in English. And the only qualified student is a boy, Sadeed Bayat. Except in this village, it is not proper for a boy to correspond with a girl. So Sadeed’s younger sister will write the letters. Except she knows hardly any English. So Sadeed must write the letters. But what about the villagers who believe that girls should not be anywhere near a school? And what about those who believe that any contact with Americans is . . . unhealthy?

As letters flow back and forth—between the prairies of Illinois and the mountains of central Asia, across cultural and religious divides, through the minefields of different lifestyles and traditions—a small group of children begin to speak and listen to each other. And in just a few short weeks, they make important discoveries about their communities, about their world, and most of all, about themselves.
