it was amazing

This book was so horrible to the soul! So heart-wrenching, so tear-worthy, with a realistic view on a the life of dear Souad, who only wanted to be loved more than anything in the world.
I finished this book with tears sprawling, adoring the way SOUAD wrote so cleverly, so deeply, retelling the life which no one could have ever known without this book.

I am relieved to say that, as a twelve year old, I took so much away from this book; politics, the corruption of some families, and the lives that are looked down upon so fiercely. And yet, with such shocking memories being laid out into this book, I took away the most proud of all feelings: hope. A single ray of hope threw Souad, helped her grow, and yet, also suffocated her.

Burned Alive is a eerie book, retelling the events of which no one can possibly imagine true - but no matter how many times you look away, telling yourself its impossible someone to be treated so harshly, your heart yearns to read on!

Purely astonishing.
Unforgettable read.
