Imagine having so many rules you have to follow, it's hard to keep track of. Imagine being ranked lower than a dog in society. This is what life is like for 15-year-old Layla who live in Afghanistan under the rule of the Taliban. Join her on her struggles through life and be with her when she goes through her fight for freedom. Can she find a scrap of love in this new and hateful world? WARNING: There is controversial material in this that I had not intended when I wrote this at a very young age. Since then, I have learned more on the subjects and hope that one day I'll be able to re-edit this and change those conflicts. I am eternally sorry if I offend you in this story. It was not intentional. NOTE: I wrote this story in 2011. It's kind of my baby because it was the first time I was ever excited about writing a real story. It's not exactly in the greatest condition. I hope to edit it at some point! ALSO, I tried my best with the facts and the Afghan and Muslim culture. Seeing as I am neither of these, it is impossible for me to represent them perfectly. If anyone has suggestions or tips, they would be much appreciated!
