Author : Suzanne Fisher

Genre : Young Adult

Shabanu by Suzanne Fisher is a Newbery Honor Book. I read many Newbery Award books, and often find the honor books as good or better. More of these books are about young people in other lands, expanding our view of the world around us.

Young Shabanu lives in the windswept Cholistan Desert of Pakistan. The second daughter in a family with no sons, she’s been allowed freedoms forbidden to most Muslim girls. But when a tragic encounter with a wealthy and powerful landowner ruins the marriage plans of her older sister, Shabanu is called upon to sacrifice everything she’s dreamed of. Should she do what is necessary to uphold her family’s honor—or listen to the stirrings of her own heart?
