"For you, a thousand times over"
Why:  If you don’t cry at some point in this novel you may need to go on a weekend retreat to Sunny Side Happy Camp, in order to get in tune with your emotions.  Khaled Hosseini has created a gut wrenching account of an Afghan boy and the changes his country experiences over several decades.  The book explores many different themes including; loyalty, guilt, sacrifice, love, fear, redemption, and forgiveness.  You’ll learn about the competitive world of kite fighting and kite running.  You will also be exposed… Sorry, don’t think we can go on.  Just thinking about Hassan is stirring up all kinds of emotions.  Plus, we’re all out of tissues and we don’t want to short out the keyboard.  Just read it - you won’t be disappointed…
