The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind is the memoir of a boy who invented the way to bring electricity to his village in Malawi. The author is the main character in this book.
This book is young reader’s edition. Little boy’s invention changed his life and the life around him.
Even this is a true story, it is almost like a magical story that has been created. This book is just beautiful as it is, and also very mean something. I think this literacy work honors diversity with talking about the hopeful story that happened opposite side of the world. Young middle age readers must read this book.
