My son and I struggled partway through some incredibly boring books on the middle school reading list. When it became apparent that he wouldn't finish on time, I desperately looked for something else on the list, knowing that whatever we picked would have to be read morning, noon, and night for him to finish on time. Thank goodness for this book! The story is fascinating and well told, and we thoroughly enjoyed a weekend of binge-reading it.
Even little brother read and enjoyed it with us - voluntarily.
This a great read for young and old, which I plan to pass on to their older sister and my parents.
It is not a book I would ever have chosen for any other reason.
I always try to read what they are reading so we can discuss it.
I had a difficult time reading the book because I do not understand anything concerning technology. However, I am glad I read it because we were able to discuss the hardships this young man experienced and, through it all, succeeded in doing what he sat out to do.
I think the book encouraged them to work hard to reach their goals.
By the way, they both (a girl and a boy) loved the book.

the boy who harnessed the wind
He made the windmill in Africa.Everyone teased him when he went to the junkyard to collect stuff.
There is a saying “necessity is the mother of invention”
He invented this during a flood and generated electricity for his country.
I highly recommend this book to the young minds of India who want to help Delhi fight this pollution. It’s indeed a necessity now for survival.
