      Great book, seems to be aimed at elementary school kids maybe 4th or 5th grade Quick read, I read it in one afternoon, but the message is definitely one that applies to any age group.

      Child lit with a muslim character I wish I had such a book to read when I was a teenager Lovely and emotional read

    15. Safiah says:

      This book is the first book I ve ever teared up in.

    16. Shumokh says:

      I m actually amazed with the reviews here Don t know why I m disappointed with the book, maybe I m too old for it But I didn t find it as taking and strong as the others, though the story is nice, just I wasn t really taken by the author s words I bought this book so i think a give away for a little girl would be the best thing to do.
