How many stars would you give this book? Colour the stars.
(5 – Excellent, 1 – Poor)
I give this book five stars. It is very interesting and a touching book. No one can read Chanda’s Wars and remain untouched by the young people who are caught in the AIDS pandemic and still battling to make sense of their lives.
