I went back and finished this one and decided it is a 2.5 maybe even a solid 3 star. I really like Nujeen but truthfully it seems as though some of this may not be 100% true.
Maybe I'm wrong. Did anyone else get that feeling though?
Almost put it under "'written by the C.I.A." but decided that would be going a bit too far.

Nujeen's book certainly puts a face on the Syrian refugee crisis, but ... ugh, I feel like a total arse for saying this ... I didn't find it a particularly likeable one. I think I expected another Malala, who after seeing her on TV had me absolutely mesmerised by her eloquence and maturity, but unfortunately I didn't find this in Nujeen. Let's not mince around: her situation is absolutely horrific, and what she and the millions of oth ...more
Let us show that we can learn from our mistakes and that we can take pride in doing the right thing, which is seeing refugees as people with the right to live anywhere they want.

I remember hearing about Nujeen last year from the Television. I didn't think much of the crippled refuge girl from Syria back then. Now, I'm holding her book in my hands and it changes everything.
Can you imagine? Can any anyone who has been nothing but safe all their life really imagine what it is like to live in a war-zone? To have terrorists running around freely, and your own government bombing you with no intervention from other countries? To absolutely h ...more
This is a thought-provoking novel that talks about what it's like to live in a war-torn area, what it means being a refugee seeking for asylum, and on top of all how it feels having a disability.
It's true ...more
My only issue is that I wish the writing style was more mature. For two adult women it is written very child-like. Have faith in your audience, we will understand what is written. It doesn't have to be dumbed down.
It's an interesting and easy read. T ...more

Nujeen is funny and its amazing how she stayed so positive through out all the dreadful stuff she went through! This book has opened my heart more towards refugees and I hope it opens many more hearts across the world. Thank you for telling your story Nujeen. X
