A fascinating, and harrowing, insight into the life of girls, and women, in Yemen.
My rating: 5/5
A fascinating, and harrowing, insight into the life of girls, and women, in Yemen. Nujood packs this short book full of detail – including a brief description of the politics and background of the country, which puts her story into context.
This brave girl risked so much to escape from the clutches of her forced marriage, and defy the customs of Yemen. Her story is inspiring.
If you do not know Nujood’s story, I recommend you read her book before looking her up on the internet, so that you can follow the events as they unfold without pre-knowledge.
