A 7-year-old Syrian girl trapped in Aleppo is getting a “Harry Potter” book, courtesy of J.K. Rowling herself. The author replied to Bana Alabed on Twitter this morning, after the young girl tweeted Rowling asking how she could get a copy of the book. Alabed’s account is controlled by her mother, Fatemah who told Rowling that her and her daughter had watched the “Harry Potter” movie and that her daughter was interested in reading the book. Alabed made headlines in October tweeting accounts of her life in war torn Syria, the account was created by her mother Fatemah after Bana asked her to show the world what life in Aleppo was like. “Bana kept asking me to share our story so the world can understand what is happening to us,” said Fatemah to NBC. “I thought of Twitter as a means of getting our message out, especially if we tweet in the English language, so that the voice of the children of Aleppo can be heard.”
