Thunder Over Kandahar

Why I like/dislike this book.
I like this book because it’s a powerful
novel of friendship set among terror of
present day Afghanistan.
 I didn’t like the rising action of my book
because Tamanna was forced an
arranged marriage and I didn’t like that
part in my book because Tamanna did
not have a say or approve of this.
Plot Line-Introduction
The conflict is man vs. man because Yasmine and
Tamanna are running and hiding away from
Tamanna’s uncle so Tamanna wouldn’t get killed.
Yasmine is from England and her parent are from Afghanistan but moved to
England for education and schooling and to raise Yasmine but now she is
getting older and more responsible so her parents decided to move to
Afghanistan and teach.
Now they are very successful teaching at the university in Afghanistan but only
the farther is aloud because there is this law that the woman is not aloud to be
in a room with other men besides her husband or farther/older brother in the
same room.(besides her house)
But now Yasmine meets a new friend (Tamanna) and they became very close
with each other so close that they treat each other like family and Yasmine’s
farther is now teaching both of them but all of that is ruined when Tamanna’s
Plot Line-Rising Action
But the man that is marring Tamanna saw her
limping and thought that she is sick and week just
because of her uncle abused her and now she is a
disgrace to her family and now her uncle has to kill
her so Tamanna ran away and hid where nobody
can find her except for Yasmine.
So Yasmine’s parents went out onto the street to talk to
Tamanna’s mother is secret without anybody knowing
beidess Yamine to talk about moving back to England and
taking Tamanna with them so she can have a fresh new
start with rights and freedom. Tamanna’s mother was very
sick and weak but very happy to hear this. She said she
ran away and hid from her uncle so Yasmine’s parents
went out onto the streets and went looking for her, but her
uncle knew some Taliban men and sent them to go look
for a young girl in a brand new blue burka (which
Yasmine has gave to her)and there parents didn’t know
that the Taliban went looking for them to because they
thought they were spies for the International Security
Assistance Forces. So her parents went out on the streets
and look while Yamine stayed at home waiting. But her
parent has been spotted by the Taliban and started
shooting. Yasmine ran out onto the street looking for her
parents. Now her parent had been shot only twice but
there was some American soldiers passing by to help.
So they took them to Kandahar city for help right
away they flew in a helicopter but Yasmine had a
few words to say to her parent “I will find Tamanna
and bring her to Kandahar City where I will meet
you then we can go to our real home back in
England”. She said with tears runny down her
face. Her mother agreed and talk to the soldier
what is there plan. And the soldier said were not
aloud to take you with us because it will be kid
napping according to the Afghani people. But ill
send you by car.
So Yasmine was sent by car to Kandahar City but before that she asked the
car driver to stop her at her house. She gabbed what ever looked really
important like passports and her farther notebook and a lot of American
And then she went to look for Tamanna she cheeked the entire house even
her bedroom she was hiding underneath her bed for hours hopping that she
would finally find her and explained what is happening and what has
happed. Now they must hurry into the car to Kandahar City to meet her
parents before anyone else can see then. This car ride would take them
about 7 hrs to drive to Kandahar City the driver over herd what there saying,
so he stopped the car and kicked them out because he didn’t want to drive
a daughter of a spy.
So he turned around and was going to tell them where they were. So they
rolled in dirt and mud so that they couldn’t recognize them. After days of
walking and a little bit of resting on the way a huge sand storm came and
injured Tamanna but Yasmine only had a couple scrapes but Tamanna was
badly injured they were on a trail leading to the city when they saw a army
truck. Tamanna and Yasmine felt hope once again so both of them stopped
in the middle wear the truck was driving so they truck would stop before
 Yasmine
said in Dari(one on the two official
languages in Afghanistan) her is the girl
Yasmine her British parents are in Kandahar
City waiting for her. (Yasmine would find
another way to her family but Tamanna need
help right away , that’s how much they cared
for each other ,so Yasmine and Tamanna are
switching identities) the soldiers knew exactly
what she is talking about because they were
told to look for her and bring her to the airport
to meet her parents there, so they took
Yasmine(Tamanna) to the airport and flew her
to England where her parents were.
Plot Line-Resolution
And Yasmine’s real parents thought that her real
daughter was dead because of an explosion and the
real Tamanna didn’t remember a thing because she
was knocked out from the sandstorm. But know a
soldier had recognized Yasmine and he is now
sending her home and calling her parents the great
news. Now finally Yasmine and Tamanna can get a
education and have rights and freedom!
