I Read The Boy Who Harnessed Wind by WilliamKamkwamba and Bryan Mealer. This book is about a boy who didn’t give up on hisdreams. I like this story because I also won’t give up on my dreams. This story took place in Malawi in 1990. Ithappened in the past. William also use to make toys and trucks and many otherthings. He lived with his sisters and his parents. They lived in Malawi,Masitala and they livedin a rural area.
It was a small village where many poor people lived. But therewas only a few rich family. The main character in the book is WilliamKamkwamba. William was 13 years old. He was a little tall and he had blackhair. William was more taller like his dad when hewas graduating. And the looked alike.
He had the same look as his dad and hewas smart like his dad also. They faced many problems like starving, broke with money, and no harvesting. They starvedbecause a group of people came to their village and collected most of their food. They were broke with money because they was poor and they had to pay Williamsschool fees. And had to buy some house supplies. They didn’t harvest becausethere was no maize.
They solved some of their problems by theharvesting season coming because themaize were harvesting again so the could eat again. So they didn’tstarve again. They had a little of money again because theysold some of the maize and made money. They harvested because it was the harvesting season. The author’s purpose to write this book wasto persuade people to not give up on their dreams. So their dreams can come to past.
The effects the book had on me was that Ishould never give up. I should always believe in myself. I would recommend the book because I wantothers to also follow heir dreams too.That is why I would recommend the book. ” Who Am I” Project William Kamkwamba A boy that is poor and not allowed to go toschool because he didn’t pay his school fees, but he still managed to study in a library and learn somethings.
