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

  • Lata

    While not as horrifying as it could be, this story of a girl forced into indentured servitude by a local rich man (and bully), is disturbing. One small mistake, and Amal is taken from her family (her father owes the rich man money and Amal is taken to pay for this) and brought to the man’s home to work as a servant. What saves this from being horrifying is thankfully Amal’s story does not involve rape, though I imagine that is a daily risk for people forced into indentured servitude. Amal finds ...more

    Our hope is OUR CHILDREN! They are showing us the way forward to a better world with the #NeverAgain movement and marches. Amal, the main character in AMAL UNBOUND by Aisha Saeed, shows the way forward in her Pakistani village--a way forward to freedom from being an indentured servant, a way forward to beat back corruption, a way forward to making education a right for all, including the girls in her village. AMAL UNBOUND is a beautiful book, a powerful book, and an incredibly timely book as our ...more

    Amal loves learning, knows that freedom lies within the pages of books, and dreams of being a teacher. Those dreams are dashed when a run-in with the village’s most powerful landlord lands her confined to indentured servitude at his family’s estate. Amal hopes to return to her family one day, but the chances of that become slim as she learns of just how much power the Khan family has. How much is Amal willing to risk to ensure her own freedom and that of her fellow servants?

    Realistic contemporary novel set in a small village in Pakistan, from the point of view of Amal. Amal is an admirable heroine, likable, smart, brave, forgiving and determined.

    After speaking back to the son a wealthy family, she is taken into servitude until her Father can repay his debts to the family. Cruel and unfair, especially for strong-willed, knowledge-hungry Amal, who slowly realizes that her freedom and possible future as a teacher has been stolen away from her.

    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.

    I received a copy of Amal Unbound from the UK distributor. I’ve been anticipating this book for AGES! Especially because of its beautiful cover. Seriously, Amal Unbound‘s cover is one of my top favourite covers of 2018. What do you think of it?

    It’s #ownvoices for Pakistani rep.

    I loved this book. It’s an empowering read, and I think children can learn a lot about indentured servitude.

    Reviewing this for SLC, so can't say much, but 4 stars means very well done realistic fiction. For middle grades.
