“I know I will fly. Not immediately, but definitely.”
Every night Loujain dreams of flying to the carpet of a million sunflowers. She dreams of the deep blue of the sky, the green of the stems and leaves, and the yellow of flower petals. But Loujain lives in a place where girls aren’t allowed to fly, so she will never get to see the magnificent colors of the field of sunflowers in person. With the support of her family and her own courage, Loujain must turn her impossible dream into a reality. Based on the true story of Loujain AlHathloul and her successful campaign to lift Saudi Arabia’s ban on women driving, Loujain Dreams of Sunflowers: A Story Inspired by Loujain AlHathloul reminds us to strive for the changes we want to see—and to never take for granted women's and girls' freedoms.
