really liked it

I deviated from my usual path of reading which is anything with a current publication date. I took my class to the library and was helping students near the "W" section so I grabbed about five books from that section to read during spring break.
This was the first book I read and it is a tough read, especially because Akilah knows what happened to Olivia isn't right and that it can never be undone.
I would recommend this book to any girl,though the girls in this story are in fifth grade. I think the light shed on female genital mutilation is really something that the majority of the girls I teach have no clue about.
