Given the heavy topic of women's rights in the world the author does a good job of putting a human face on the issue. It's written in verse and is a fairly Quick read so it would be a good choice for some reluctant readers. Female oppression and genital mutilation are topics that are discussed in almost too vague terms so most middle schoolers would need a guiding hand to get what this novel is talking about. Would make a great novel for a book discussion group.
