Amazing story ! Started off like an episode of gossip girl and 90210 but ended surprisingly beautifully. Sophie Price was the most selfish and vain person you could know but after having to serve a sentence in a country she never thought twice of because of her horrible past behavior, she becomes a warm loving and appreciative human being. Of course there is a great guy in this story but he's not your average guy because he too has a selfish past. At the beginning Ian can't stand Sophie's selfish ways but he grows to love her because she becomes a beautiful person on the inside rather then on the outside. This is an amazing story that makes you realize what you take for granted and opens your eyes up to the evil that is out there in the world. But most of all it teaches you that after any tragedy you may go through there is always hope and happiness in the end because the sun always comes out.
I don't want to spoil the story for you guys but to give a bit of background Sophie Price ends up being sentenced to volunteer in an orphanage in Uganda. In this particular orphanage they treat and help raise children affected by Joseph Kony's Lord of Resistance Army (LRA), which is an army that abducts, kills, and displaces people, specifically children. Kony creates his army by taking children from their families to join his army and if they refuse he cuts a limb so they can't go to the opposing army and usually these children's parents are killed. Invisible Children is an organization that helps these children with donations and attracts attention from the media to hopefully one day catch Kony and his army so they can be tried by the International Criminal Court (ICC).
If you guys are interested in this organization and helping out please visit the Invisible Children website for more information. And if you'd like to read Vain by Fisher Amelie click this link to buy it.
