Emily reviewed Eucabeth Odhiambo's novel "Auma's Long Run." Her novel focuses on Auma, a young girl in Kenya who wins a track scholarship--which will allow her to realize her dream of going to college and becoming a doctor. But when disease strikes her own family, she must make a difficult choice to leave her family or stay and support them. Recently, "Auma's Long Run" was included in Booklist's 2017 Top 10 Sports Books for Youth.
This was a great book, definitely one of my favorites! It is a heartwarming book full of the hardships and dreams of a girl names Auma who has been fighting against the odds since the day she was born.
I recommend this to all readers above the 6th grade.
