18 year old girl who meets the Turner sisters, who are very poor. From asking the Turner sisters a few questions, Nancy learns that a distant relative of them (Mr. Crowley), promised to make sure that he would leave the Turners a good amount of money in his will so that they would no longer suffer. But, Nancy discovers that he actually left all his property to the Tophams- a snobby.
*The Code, a personal experience book written by Mawi Asgedom, alternately addresses the reader, specifically teens, to get the most out of life, and how to do so; this is my review/take on the book...
Please provide feedback to my work so far. This is not complete yet but I am toying around and want to see if there is interest and also to see what it takes to make an actual book. Thanks for all comments, its very much appreciated.
We All Have a Voice” is an inspiring testament to the power of speaking the truth, of bringing meaning to suffering, and of discovering what truly matters in this life.
Amina, Maha’s mother, grew up in a Middle Eastern home where, from the time she was seven, she was responsible for the housework and for the care of her four younger siblings. Brutally beaten by her father throughout her childhood, Amina later faced cruel discrimination in favor of her brothers.
Amina nonetheless persisted in her studies and eventually received a university degree in business. She then married and had the opportunity to live for a time in the West where equality, universal education and recognition of the rights of women and children were part of daily life.
She returned home a changed person and saw her family’s treatment of women and children with new eyes. No longer willing to observe injustice from the sidelines, Amina had to speak up, no matter what it cost her.
At age 14, Maha is the first young person of Middle Eastern origins to have undertaken the challenge of writing a book about her mother’s experiences, highlighting the denigrating effects of discrimination, the abuse of labor laws, and the corrupting power of greed.
Mindful of the anguish of countless others who have been similarly abused, Maha found power in her pen and liberty in her voice, thereby inspiring us all to speak the truth, to bring meaning to suffering, and to live a courageous life.

Hello Dear Booksie Friends! I greet you after long absence, but things go on. I am deep into second novel 'Square Grouper Sandwich' and also writing eesays and shorts. This book review is one of those ah, exercises.
Some books are like sleeper cells--they slide into our life quietly, without any hype or hoopla, without grand promises or proclaiming a direct line to God, and the content is so self-evident that until we actually take notice and activate the understanding, the messages go relatively unnoticed. This is such a book.
