    Amal Unbound is a gripping novel about bravery, the power of education, and the need to think beyond the status quo. I loved rooting for Amal and getting a glimpse into Pakistan. Highly recommended. As a side note, I'd also recommend the author's first book, a young adult novel titled 'Written in the Stars' that I absolutely loved.

    This book is written for children and is without bad language, sex, drugs, extreme violence (see note way below it is a spoiler). Absolutely suitable for older elementary. This one belongs on everyone's shelf.
