A Girl Named Disaster tells the story of Nhamo, an 11 year old living in Mozambique who flees her village instead of going through with a horrible arranged marriage. Nhamo's story starts slow and I struggled to keep reading this book, but as Nhamo's ventured farther from her home village, her story became more interesting: conversing with spirits and seeking to find her way to Zimbabwe, Nhamo's journey truly is incredible.
