A fascinating story, passionately and beautifully written by a very young author about a courageous and determined mother with the sense of moral duty to share her story. Amina’s story resonates with many people, her life experience and story therefore has elements that readers identify with and learn from and yet it is entirely unique and original. This is a very touching story with many plots. Kudos to Maha for a job well done.

Very well-written; it didn't read as though a 14-year old wrote it.
Having grown up in Dubai, I could relate to a lot of what was said in the book, thereby increasing it's appeal. I was also able to guess the family. Prominent, indeed!
Extreme wealth is rarely made through a strict adherence to principles. I find that most of the world's rich and famous have compromised their values to get that which they craved. And then the guilt of their ill-begotten gains drives them to religion and charity.
But then again, only if you are broken inside will you seek status through wealth and fame.
The truth is, they are deeply broken people and deserve our sympathy (and a little bit of our ridicule).
A life lived in service is a life worth living. Happy to hear you're following in your mother's footsteps, young Maha. Looking forward to more books from you.

Hi, my name is Abdulrahman and I’m the eldest son of Munira in this book. I will send these comments to Amina and not Maha because I know that Maha is a tool only used by a sick person which is Amina.
I need to know how she dares talk about my family! Did any one of us came to her and said that we are poor or we need money!? How dare she bring my dead brother story in this book which is full of lies!? The biggest lie is that Ali is not dead and our other brother is dead which was not connected to this whole story in any way. We are a family that is leaded by a king which she showed as a normal army employee with less salary and since I was burned he given us whatever we need. All of us has great jobs with good salaries and leaves happily together.
How she dares talk about my uncle?! He is a successful businessman who really worked hard and applied innovative ways to get his money. I have lots of loans and once he called me to his office and talked to me in regards to my loans without my request and by his own wish! At that time in the office I saw him help lots of people with money. He leaved me that day with a gift for my mother. I will talk about myself and say that I wouldn’t benefit him in any way or benefit his business, but always I was respected by my uncle. Always we are most welcomed in his house and we are offered to stay in his apartment while traveling to Saudi Arabia without paying anything. He is a successful man who started from zero and now he is one of the well-known business men in United Arab Emirates.
To who will read this book, please understand that you are going to read a book of a sick person who needs to see a doctor and full of lies that I can proof (Contact me on:-
Amina.is email@example.com for the proofs). This book is written to blackmail a successful business man and threatens that the next step will be producing a movie if the author and Amina didn’t get money. In her book she is saying that she envied her brothers and sisters in low and asked for money which shows how sick is Amina. Please don’t distribute this book in any way because you will be sued of publishing wrong information about our family and without having any type of permission.
