I love memoirs. I really love well written memoirs. The writing is way above par unlike some other memoirs that are simply endless pages of facts. Bashir's book is so engaging! She relays the life she lost so well that, up until all hell broke loose, you are envious of her humble beginnings. I really enjoyed discovering what life growing up in an African village was like and I truly grieved when that life was shattered in yet another African nation.
