è The Girl Who Saw Lions Þ Download by ↠´ Berlie Doherty It's about a quarter of the way through before the story actually gets moving.
Quite a boring read for me.
DISCLAIMER: I received this book for free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
The Girl Who Saw Lions is a middlegrade book dealing with a lot of complex and deeply emotional issues, including HIV and adoption.
The novel follows Rosa and Abela, two young girls who are dealing with their own lives and issues before eventually being tied together.
I thought the way the novel dealt with these issues was very skilled.
This book is clearly one for use in schools, providing a springboard for discussions and a place to consider opinions and personal reactions.
There was enough detail to provide an inkling of what was going on and what had happened, but not too much to be depressing to younger readers.
A reader would be able to go on and talk to the adults in their life and learn more about these hardships o AMAZING.
Although this book was very predictable, Abela would get orphaned and end up in England and then get adopted by Rosa and her mum, it was still good.
By the way I know it was like a spoiler but it basically says that in the blurb so ya.
I loved this book! Everything about it.
The plot, the characters, the format, the language, I loved every bit of it and I couldn't put it down!
This book follows the lives of Abela and Rose.
Abela is a 9 year old African girl who lives in poverty in Tanzania.
She has lost her mother, father and younger sister due to the epidemic of AIDS in her country.
Her uncle comes and takes her away from her grandmother and sends her to England because he believes she will have a better life there.
Her life is changed forever after many obstacles and struggles, she gets adopted.
Rose is a 13 year old girl who happily lives in Sheffield with her mother and she is frustrated with the news that her mother wants to adopt a little girl.
Little does she know, her new sister will soon become her new best friend.
Middlegrade fiction: age 1114.
A compelling middlegrade read, told from the dual perspectives of two girls whose lives are ultimately joined.
Thirteenyearold Rosa lives is England with her singleparent mom and loves her life just the way it is.
When Rosa’s mom announces her plans to adopt, Rosa feel hurt and rejected.
Meanwhile, nineyearold Abela lives in rural Tanzania, born into a family devastated by HIV.
An illness whose effects young Abela cannot not comprehend.
Still reeling from the deaths of her mom and baby sister, Abela’s uncle rips her away from her grandmother and home, trafficking her to England with the intention to sell her.
The treatment Abel
It’s a sweet, compassionate read (for children of around 814).
I hated it at first because I wrongly assumed it was adult fiction trying to talk down to me.
But then I realized it was for children, and could begin to see its beauty, magic and warmth.
Abela lives in Tanzania, and is rooted to her home and customs.
Rosa is in London, safe with her mother and grandparents.
They are destined to meet.
But how and where?
It’s like reading an Enid Blyton, or a Jacqueline Wilson.
I would highly recommend it to parents trying to teach their children about the wider world, about privilege and freedom, sisterhood and sharing, adoption and race, and even female genital mutilation and AIDS.
The novel care I wasn’t sure how I felt about this book at firstI thought it offered quite a reductive portrait of Tanzania, but further into the book it expanded this and showed the author really loved the country.
My one real criticism is that Rosa is supposed to be thirteen, yet she has the emotional maturity of an eight year old.
It was a little bit jarring, as were the constant changes in narrator midchapter.
I did get sucked into it at the end though, and really grew to love Abela.
I would recommend this book for children learning about Tanzania or immigrationit would stimulate some great classroom discussion about other countries, and how it would feel for a child moving to a new country.
I just wish that Rosa was as young as she sounds!
(I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review) A fantastic story of two very different cultures Tanzania and England.
A story of two very different girls who end up becoming sisters.
Very relevant, current story!
With her uncle scheming to get back to England she soon finds herself living in a strange country with a virtual stranger and her life will never be the same again.
At 13 Rosa is the only child of a single mother living in Sheffield.
When her mother announces that she wants to adopt a child from Africa she is horrifiedwhy would her mother want another daughter? Isn't she good enough? Can Rosa come to terms with the idea of someone else joining her family and will Abela be able to get away from her Uncle and his plans for her?
