Hosseini gives us a new lease on life, from the horrible lives these women had to live through. I would have liked to recommend A Thousand Splendid Suns to anyone, but because of such adult themes like abuse and murder I think it shouldn’t be given the faint of heart and to anyone younger than thirteen years old.

After the veil law was put in place, her non-religious boys and girls school was changed to a religious school where boys and girls were split up. Many, many women did not like the new rule of the veil, so much that once protests began, women were arrested for not wearing the veil. Fashion moved from ideas taken from western culture to more conservative, like the veils or the full body dresses women had to wear.

One day, she wanted to be a girl, the next day she wanted to be a boy,” Kirksey told FOX26. “The other kids are confused as well, calling her a boy and she would start screaming, ‘I’m not a boy!’” “I don’t think we should be talking to other people’s children who are under the age of 18 about being transgender,” she said.
