One story out of many that need to be told. However, I got slightly lost between the 10 year old narrator and the "writer" at times wondering how much of an artistic license she took. Though, I shouldn't really underestimate the narrating abilities of a 10 year old girl that has gone through as much as Nujood has.

Nevertheless, it was a really quick read so I would recommend it to those looking to get insight into the lives of women in Yemen and/or the Middle East. This kind of stuff breaks my heart.
