Jazeera in the Sun is a book that I have recently read at home and it is a very good one. I think that it is a good book because of the way the author writes it. It is simply written but gets the message across to readers about the big differences between richer and poorer countries. She describes people really well. The main character in this story is Jazeera, a little girl who comes from England and goes to visit her grandma in India. Her grandma is also another main character. In her life in England Jazeera has never learnt about poor people and how they look, but now in India she realizes how different they are from her. She knows now that even the littlest things in India are really appreciated. I think that it is very sad at the end because her grandma dies, but it is another way of dying: she dies in the Sun and her grandma told her before she died how Jazeera had made her very happy. I hope I can read the other 2 books about Jazeera; another time maybe.
