Nujood is 10 when her family arranges a marriage for her with a much older man. Her husband beets her and rapes her, so Nujood sues for a divorce.

Fascinating story, but I want to know more about how her future will play out. Will she ever be suitable for marriage? Is she safe in Yemen? Will her family be able to recover from this?
