When Amber runs, it's the only time she feels completely free - far away from her claustrophobic home life. Her father wants her to be a dutiful daughter, waiting for an arranged marriage like her sister Ruby.

Running is a quiet rebellion. But Amber wants so much more - and she's ready to fight for it.

It's time for a revolution.

[Trigger Warning: Physical, Emotional Abuse]
“...One say I will change the world. Not only for my younger sister and my daughter, but for all women. I will lay the foundations, and I will lead the way.”

I keep thinking all day today is the best word to express what I thought of this book. Because Run Rebel is really remarkable. It was written in verse that was beautifully well crafted. It was said that the less the words, the better it will able to speak out to the people. And it really does. I love the book so So much. It was very easy to follow the story flow and grasp the emotion from each of the characters.

Run Rebel is powerful, empowering women and girls, hope, and love. It is about two women - Amber and her mom, Mrs. Rai who lives in fear because of the father/husband which he uses emotional & physical abuse to both of them. Amber and Mrs. Rai together rising up to fight from living in fear with the man who keeps on abusing them.

The moment I step into the first page I was quickly immersed with the story and hard for me to put the book down. Run Rebel is a powerful book that I could not stress enough how great it is and definitely, every one of you needs to read Run Rebel.
