Book Recommendation: Amina's Voice

Welcome to #iLoveMG where I share middle grade books that my fifth graders recommend. (Please note that my fifth graders read a wide variety of books across a wide variety of genres, levels, and topics. Do not think that these books are "only" for fifth graders.) Or check out #3rdfor3rd for recommendations from when I taught third grade.

Amina's Voice

Recommended by Eli

Hi everyone,

I read Amina's Voice by Hena Khan. This book is about a Pakistani girl who lives in the US.

A girl name Amina lives in Milwaukee. She loves to sing and play piano. But when her super religious uncle Thaya Jaan comes to town, her lifestyle encounters some big changes. Read to learn about what happens over the three months where Thaya Jaan is in Milwaukee.

While you're reading this book, you will feel like you are the character and will have similar emotions to what the character is having. The plot is so good, you won't want to stop.

Here is a quote that I think is good. "But I know change is gonna come. Oh yes it will."

Do you like books about friendship, middle school issues, and an older brother who doesn't always agree with his parents? If one of these categories applies to you, you should DEFINITELY be reading Amina's voice.

Thanks for reading my post. If you like the book, feel free to let me know.
