Title : Tetralogy of Laskar Pelangi #1 : Laskar Pelangi
Author : Andrea Hirata
Publisher : Bentang

A great book by Andrea Hirata which even had filmed with same title Laskar Pelangi. The book told about  many of incredible things which happen on the childhood amongst members of the Laskar Pelangi. Eleven extraordinary childreen of Malay Belitong which never ever give up eventhough the situation is not sympathetic to them. One of the childreen was Lintang, a small stiff copra but genius and happily cycling 80 kilometers to go home to satisfy his 'thirsty'  of knowledge even sometimes just to sing a song "Padamu Negeri" at the end of school hours. Or Mahar, a grated coconut janitor but at once a fully imaginative sudden artist,  not logical, creative, and often being under estimate by his friends, but succesful to lift up the school degree on the August 17 carnival. And nine other people Laskar Pelangi members is so vibrant and alive in the struggle to reach common goals. Knowing the ironically of their lives, their honesty thoughts, their beautiful adventure, and find yourself laughing, crying, and being touch when reading each pieces of this book.
This book is presented for those who knew "the magic of childhood memories", and especially also for anyone who still believes there is another mircale door to change the world: education
