it was amazing
bookshelves: everyone-must-read, social-justice
Read in January, 2008

I rate this with 5 stars primarily because I think everyone should read it. There are a lot of books that give shockingly different perspectives on countries than those Americans get from the usual media...but this one also points out the differences. It's a little too emotional at points to be taken as seriously as it should be, but I believe what the author writes and she should be taken seriously.
