The Forbidden Wish by Jessica Khoury

The main character of this story is Zahra is a brave and cowardly girl, the reason I  say she is brave is because the author have wrote some evidence about her in the book for example : “when saving herself means betraying him she choose to save Aladdin, she seizes the opportunity to save Aladdin.” She always choose to save him(because she love him).Why I think she is cowardly is because in the book the author have wrote : “what am I doing?”I whisper. I know where this road leads for I have travelled it before. I don’t dare follow it again, no matter what.” She is scared of following the road because something bad have happen to her when she is following this road before and she is not brave enough to follow the road again.
