Tell us about your favorite book: I really haven’t gotten into reading untill this year cause of a book I read by Khaled Hosseini, The Kite Runner. The book is about a story of two young boys who are friends in Afghanistan, but their friendship is wierd. Growing up in Kabul, Amir and Hassan are inseparable friends. As an adult living in California, Amir remains haunted by a childhood incident in which he betrayed Hassan’s trust. When he learns that the Taliban has murdered Hassan and wife, Amir returns to his homeland to learn the fate of the couple’s son. This book will forever be my favorite. I cried so many times reading it.
