it was amazing

I recommend this book not for its writing style--the prose is very simple, as you might expect from a non-native speaker of it--but for the insights it has to impart. Here's your chance to understand what it's like to be raised a Muslim girl, to undergo female circumcision, and to eventually shed the beliefs that kept you subservient. Ali will put you into her world. It isn't a pretty world, but it's very real, and once you read this you'll never again be able to pretend it isn't there.
