This book is an autobiography of a young bubbling girl who was diagnosed with a rare disease of SMA (Spinal Muscular Atrophy) at very early age.
The book travels through the toughness of her mind and body which helped her to carry her journey despite all odds.
She was going through a life which was totally different from others—very challenging and full of obstacles. In spite of all these hurdles, she had to continue living. She never took her life so hard, instead she would say, “If Allah (God) had not chosen me to take birth with this problem, life would not have been so interesting.”
An inspiring & motivating story for the readers, especially youngsters.
