Avhi’s Flight is a work of personal dramatic fiction on inspiring themes penned by author Janet Johnson Anderson. Set against the incredible backdrop of the Nepalese countryside, our story follows the adventures of title character Avhi as she struggles against a culture that continues to disregard and devalue its women and girls. When Avhi flees from a proposed marriage in a truly brutal fashion, the fourteen-year-old finds that there are many more girls out there who, like her, desire so much more from their lives than that which their culture expects and forces upon them. What results is an eye-opening personal account of many lives in common, and a tale of empowerment that is sure to spark dialogue.

Author Janet Johnson Anderson sets a clear focus on very important issues throughout her book: women’s rights, independence, awareness, empowerment, and understanding of the plight of Avhi and so many others like her. Yet the book doesn’t feel like a lecture, but an intimate portrayal of real difficulty in a fictionalized form. Avhi is a relatable young woman with plenty of heart and potential for a bright future, and by engaging with her on a deeper level, readers are introduced to the barricades that make it impossible for her to achieve more. The atmospheric depiction of this character-led tale showcases the variety of hardships, giving them compelling dialogue and unique development through Anderson’s superb characterization skills. Overall, Avhi’s Flight is an intriguing and engaging piece of fiction which also begets important considerations for real-world issues.
