Book Review 1: The Victory Boys
As promised on facebook, in between series we shall have some book reviews inshallah!
Here is the first one: The Victory Boys (By Jamal Orme)
I particularly like this book because of its appeal to older children, especially boys – combining aspects of faith and secular life, the book tackles an everyday topic in our lives of whether we should stick things in boxes or make them work side-by-side.
Here is the blurb!
“Junayd and his friends think madrasa is a waste of time, and older brother Saleem is fast becoming the black sheep of the family. That is, until the Imam of the mosque initiates an extra-curricular project outside his comfort zone. But can faith and football flourish side-by-side?”
Has anyone read it already? If so, please share your thoughts! My 8 year old loved it
