Young Khana's heart holds one desire above and beyond all others: to attend school and become educated. But Khana lives in a dangerous war zone in the Middle East, where girls are not allowed to go to school. Khana's thirst for knowledge cannot be quenched. She courageously cuts her hair so she can look like a boy and attends school just like the neighborhood boys. But Khana's plan is interrupted when her father suddenly disappears. Now, instead of going to her classes, she is forced to spend her days filtering through the local landfill looking for trash treasures to sell at the market so her family can eat. Will Khana's father ever return? Will she ultimately get the chance to discover that girls from different cultures can study and live in peace? Author M. Heather King writes stories about tolerance issues because she has a deep desire to encourage the progression of humanity toward acceptance and respect for the uniqueness of all people.

She is currently working on her Ph.D. The author resides in Bedford, Pennsylvania, with her husband and three children, and enjoys spending part of every summer in New Hampshire and Maine.
