My ISU novel
My ISU novel is called Princess. The novel follows a Saudi Arabian Princess through her life as a royal family member. When we think of a princess we think of a strong, beautiful woman who is sure of herself and privileged in everything she does. This book follows the real life of a princess proving that the title of being a princess in Saudi Arabia is nothing to be desired at all. The author of the novel is an american who knows a Saudi princess, the princess is unable to write the novel herself because if she was to e discovered she would be killed. In Saudi Arabia men have priority over everyone meaning that you could have a younger brother but he would be in charge of you. The book follows the idea that men are superior to women and that women don;t have the right to make their own choices and should not be able to do what they want. Princess shows the brutalities that women around the world go through daily, and how privileged and lucky we are here in Canada to be able to make our own choices. Really pleased with the novel as a whole really made me rethink about what is important to me in life.
