Senzai is the author of award winning Shooting Kabul, chosen by the Asian Pacific Librarians Association as their Young Adult Literature winner and an NPR’s Backseat Book Club pick, and its companion novel Saving Kabul Corner. She spent her childhood in San Francisco, Jubail, Saudi Arabia and attended high school in London, England where she was voted "most likely to read a literary revolution" due to her ability to get away with reading comic books in class.
