Thank you @amazonpublishing for sending me a free copy in exchange for a review.

The Deets: Set in Kabul, Afghanistan, we follow the story of Enjeela Ahmandi’s five-year journey of escape to India to be reunited with her mother and the rest of her siblings.

A memoir telling the story about survival, self-discovery, and war.

Just my thoughts: It started out fairly well. The story was told through the eyes of five-year-old Enjeela where she had that perfect family and childhood. In came the war, and shattered the life that she has known.

I haven’t ever read a memoir before, so I wasn’t sure what to expect.

I loved reading about Afghanistan, their culture, the family bonding, and this book spoke details about that.

As I have read lots of books about war, there was nothing new with this one. But then again, usually I find that every book talking about war experiences are typically just the same. The whole idea of being a refugee, being forced out of your country to find a safer place. Surviving the war but leaving some kind of mark that would forever be remembered.

It did have a unique vibe though, and Enjeela was the youngest I have ever read for experiencing the brutality of the war.  Especially the idea of her getting separated from her parents at such a young age.

I also loved how strong she was, her personality and I can’t help but admire her.

All in favor, should I say Aye? I would say pick it up. It’s worth the read especially if you are a fan of books about war and the Middle East.

Do you have space on your shelf? I’d say burrow. Make up your mind about it first before purchasing it.
