I’m posting this review on behalf of my daughter, Shranya.

The Book that kept me engrossed even while I was travelling on my vacations

The Sigh of a Desert Storm is a fictional book for tweens as well as young adults. It is about a girl, Clemira who with her family, is struggling to survive in her home country because of a war. Her childhood joy is lost. Her best friend, Adam decides to shift but unfortunately dies as the ship on which he was travelling was capsized. That caused more turbulence in Clemira’s mind. Her school BFF, Alea is the only one left for her. Her school auditorium is also destroyed by bombs and bullets, which resulted in her school closing down for some months.

Scared, frightened and worried about Clemira and her little sister Saarah’s future, the family decides to move. Will Clemira be able to cope up with this change? Will she survive? Will the war ever be over? Seek out the answers of these questions while reading this book.

I loved the way how this book was written. The author has depicted every problem nicely. I also got to know more about wars.

My key take aways –

  • We should thank God for what we have as we do not know how many people are craving for it.
  • We should not take friends for granted.
  • Do as much as you can in your life, because we do not know what is in store…

Added by Asha: The author, Anagha Sooruj, is 10 years old and this is her second book.
