really liked it
bookshelves: female-hero

One more I read in middle school, haven't read since, and still remember vividly. I struggle often to give books an "I really liked it" rating if they didn't end happily, and even though I know this about myself, I feel like I owe these harder, un-perfect-endings books something more. This book falls into that category. It deals with misogyny, powerlessness of a child, family culture in the middle east, (mis)treatment of animals, and so much more. I feel like I could use some serious discussion with someone about how this book ended - that's the one thing my middle school Social Studies classroom just couldn't offer. Maybe I will recommend it to the feminist book group I want to join!
