Butterfly: From Refugee to Olympian by Yusra Mardini
'War, for all its atrocities, is punctuated by instances of ung#fathomable human spirit and grace. Olympic swimmer, Yusra Mardini's story is a prime example. Butterfly recounts this Syrian refugee's extraordinary tale of bravery, survival, and winsome, never-give-up moxie. It is impossible not to be won over by Yusra, who once swam for her life at sea and is now fighting for the dignity and wellbeing of countless refugees like her whose lives have been upturned by war.' Khaled Hosseini.
Reader's Panel Review: Excellent biographical tale by Syrian swimmer of her journey as a refugee and as a swimmer. 10/10.
