"After reading Tiny Dancer, one cannot help be in awe of the human spirit. And it is a story of profound transformation, not merely physical, but that of the heart."
Khaled Hosseini


The astonishing story of a brave little girl from Afghanistan who survived horrific disfiguring burns and was given a second chance at life Tiny Dancer is the miraculous story of Zubaida (pronounced Zoo BAY duh), a nine-year-old girl from a remote region of Afghanistan who suffers excruciating burns when a kerosene heater explodes. But although Zubaida is horribly mutilated, she doesnt die. When an American soldier chances to see Zubaida, he cant ignore her suffering. He takes herdespite standing ordersto the U.S. Medics. Assisted by a large coalition of benefactors, Zubaida is flown to Los Angeles where she begins a series of surgeries by Dr. Peter Grossman, who (with his wife Rebecca) eventually takes the child into his own home. This is a heartfelt and inspiring story of incredible courage equally matched by incredible kindness.
