We think this book was fantastic because it was written in prose and moved quickly.
Our favorite part in the story is when she drank Fanta for the first time because it was descriptive.
The character that we liked best was Amira because she was realistic and fun to learn about.
We think the author wrote this book because she wanted to raise the awareness of the crisis in Darfur.
We would recommend this book to our friends because it shows an imperfect world and how you can survive through anything.
Reading to us is very special because we get to chose what I read, learn, and see creativity.
