Amina’s Song by Hena Khan is a great book about a girl who travels to visit family in Pakistan. When she comes back to the US, her friends are worried about her. They only hear about the bad things in Pakistan, so they assume that it is a bad place to live. Amina’s Song is about sharing your thoughts through writing music and making friends with good people. Do you think Amina’s friends will come to understand that Pakistan isn’t a bad place to live, or will they only be scared of the events that happen there?
I think that Amina’s Song by Hena Khan is a great companion book to Amina’s Voice. While Amina’s Voice was a very engaging book, I think that Amina’s Song is more laid-back and slow-paced. There isn’t a very big plot, but you meet a lot of characters. This book is more about a girl's life on a day-to-day basis when not much happens. I think the book would have been more interesting if there was a larger plot line and more suspense. I would recommend this book to kids ages 10+ who enjoy reading before bed but get nightmares easily. I say this because the book isn’t scary, so you won’t be afraid of the topics the author included.
