Read Amal Unbound by Aisha Saeed Online

Amal Unbound

Life is quiet and ordinary in Amal's Pakistani village, but she had no complaints, and besides, she's busy pursuing her dream of becoming a teacher one day. Her dreams are temporarily dashed when--as the eldest daughter--she must stay home from school to take care of her siblings. Amal is upset, but she doesn't lose hope and finds ways to continue learning. Then the unimaginable happens--after an accidental run-in with the son of her village's corrupt landlord, Amal must work as his family's servant to pay off her own family's debt. Life at the opulent Khan estate is full of heartbreak and struggle for Amal--especially when she inadvertently makes an enemy of a girl named Nabila. Most troubling, though, is Amal's growing awareness of the Khans' nefarious dealings. When it becomes clear just how far they will go to protect their interests, Amal realizes she will have to find a way to work with others if they are ever to exact change in a cruel status quo, and if Amal is ever to achieve her dreams....

Amal Unbound Reviews

  • Kayla Edwards

    This book released yesterday. It was waiting on my doorstep when I got home. I read it in just a few hours. Engrossing, wonderfully written - I couldn't put it down. I love Amal and my heart breaks for her. This would be a great fiction/non-fiction pairing for I Am Malala: How One Girl Stood Up for Education and Changed the World. Beautiful story, highly recommended.

  • Jean-Marie

    This quick read packs quite a punch. It's a great selection for a middle school book club.

  • Cassie Gutman (happybooklovers)

    Easy-to-read prose and a harrowing and crucially important story, this is a book I would put in every middle schoolers hands (and parents) if I worked in a library or school. Definitely needs to be part of library collections.

    Beautiful, important, and empowering.

  • Lola  Reviewer

    If everyone decided nothing could change, nothing ever would.


    There’s no denying that this is an important book.

    There’s no denying that the world is a better place with stories like this one being told.

    This is the sort of book that I could see myself throwing at people because I certainly want a higher amount of the world population to understand how essential education is in a girl’s life. I want us all to stop taking it for granted. Just yesterday I was looking at my unofficial transcript, t ...more
