Nujeen: One Girl’s Incredible Journey from War-Torn Syria in a Wheelchair by Nujeen Mustafa and Christina Lamb

I’m not going to go into great detail about this book to save arguments. I believe that everyone deserves freedom and a place to call home. No one should have to stuffer in any way to have basic human needs met. If taxes have to be higher so be it. 

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. There aren’t many details so I feel the full extent of her journey is not expressed well enough. 

I won’t say don’t read it, because you should. I just wish there was more, to get the full effect of this tragedy into people’s hands. It’s unfortunate, but “all the gory details” is what makes people pay attentiom.
