Extra Credit is a great book. It tells of a girl, Abby, that is failing class and may have to get held back. She tries really hard to keep up her grades, and does some extra work for extra credit. Her extra credit work is to write to someone in Afghanistan. When the people in Afghanistan received her letter, they let Sadeed's sister, Almira, write back with Sadeed's help because it was improper for a boy to write to a girl, but Sadeed was the best writer in his class.
This book is interesting and it made me want to keep on reading. I would recommend it to my friends!
