A Real Banger with Least Expected Thrill Notes.

The art is to be real and afresh. Likewise the "The Sky We Own" is. The story of a Kashmiri girl foreshadowing her Kashmiri Spirit, supporting anti-colonization protests and the cause of Mujahedeen. If it just had been so, certainly would be a prejudiced and a myopic piece. However, the novella take swift turns and the plot unfolds from least expected angles. The appropriation in characters and speech is astounding with the Kashmiri imagery providing the aesthetic Asian flavour.

Its an utter surprise to see it coming from a 13-year-old young gun.

•BOOK: The sky we own
•AUTHORESS: Haleemah Malik

This book is indeed a masterpiece written by a 13 years old girl Haleemah Malik. Throughout the journey, the reader will dive through the life of 3 Kashmiri children facing Indian oppression. The way 3 of them takes the situation of curfew, Indians domination, and all the what they are going through is utterly different, and this depicts the difference in the mentality and thoughts of siblings.
The plot was so engaging that one can’t leave it unread at any instance. The perfect picture of the mini fight between the siblings, the difficulties Kashmiris are facing, and how they are going through it was depicted brilliantly. Although the author is so young, there wasn’t any scenario where a reader can spot the immature instance. The flow of words, the character description, and the vast vocabulary were indeed remarkable. This incredible piece of art by Haleemah deserves much appreciation.
