Hello! I am Lucy. I am in the ninth grade. I like to play hockey, ski, and rock climb. For my Book Beat review, I read The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini.
The Kite Runner is a thrilling book about a boy named Amir who learns betrayal and loyalty while he grows up in Kabul, the heart of Afghanistan.
It takes place in times when the country is going through many changes. It is very important to Amir that he proves himself to his father. Through his younger years Amir is accompanied by Hassan, his servant. He enjoys spending time with Hassan, but won’t call his friend.
However, they race kites together, fend off the bully Assef and his minions, and overall enjoy childhood. As Amir grows up he does many regretful things, which leads to Amir and his father moving to America, leaving Hassan back in Afghanistan. . .
