Young author (11) busy with second book, better sight

2017-10-03 06:05

The parents of an 11-year-old boy set to launch his first book at Lansdowne Library this month, says his prognosis has improved drastically in the last few weeks since tests and scans were done (“Thrilling work by young writer”, People’s Post, 25 September).

Amr Salie, the young author of newly published book Blameless, has been home-schooled for a long time due to medical conditions.

“Amr has some visual challenges but has improved drastically with stronger medical lenses. He has recently seen an excellent eye surgeon and specialist who gave us renewed hope and who will monitor him closely for any changes,” says his mother, Maryam Manuel.

Amr is already busy compiling his second book with stronger vision and renewed confidence. He is full of life and vigour, says his mother.

“We are grateful and thank Allah every day for this mercy. And as a family we will constantly support Amr in all his academic, medical and emotional needs. He is a happy, pleasant, confident and ambitious soul and we pray that whatever challenges he finds himself in, he will always remain content and remember this miracle of hope the almighty has granted him.”V Blameless is available for purchase at R80 each from the family and publishers. You can also buy a copy on Amazon.
