West of Kabul, East of New York by Tamin Ansary
This book was recommended by a parent of one of last year's AP students as a good companion to Kite Runner. It is a memoir by an Afghan American who became famous by sending an email that circulated wildly after the terrorist attacks on September 11th. It was poignant reading and I intend to use it with my classes as a follow-up to their summer reading.
