Read in November, 2009

A incredible account of what life was like growing up within Suddam Hussien's inner social circle, as told by Zainab Salbi, a young Iraqi woman whose family couldn't escape his control. She so bravely shares her hardship and that of the Iraqi people under Suddam's dictatorship and tells her story of overcoming an interrupted childhood, an abusive arranged marriage, and finding strength in helping women survivors of war.
