One thought on “The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind, by William Kamkwamba

  1. Comment from Kayla:
    The Boy who harnessed the Wind was a very inspirational story. The characters were my favorite criteria. They were very distinguished which made this auto biography even more realistic. The plot had moments where it was very dramatic and slightly boring which was a disappointment. The setting was pretty descriptive and interesting considering that this was nonfiction book. This book would be more of a fun read than a Newbery award. This book would be perfect for a school reading list since it is nonfiction and teaches you a bit about science. I would recommend this to middle school grades.
