The story is an eye-opener to cultural practices and the hardships they bring but it clearly was not entirely written by a 10 year-old. Which I'm seeing affects the reviews and sympathies in an interesting way that her story bought and sold to appeal to the masses gives way, of course, for unmerited reviews from people who have an unfortunate dislike for such when a story is intended for outreach, especially when money is involved, and especially when the audience in which this read was intended for has generally no first hand accounts of-in which we can only give an opinion and hopefully it's a sympathetic one that can give merit and influence back to support women in this culture over time. So besides that, this read displays an outreach of a culture going through a shift in arguments of ethics and civil rights for women, in which the only way for that like stated above is through influence and voice of opinion by sharing. I hope Nujood will continue to make an impact in her society by becoming the lawyer she has made a goal of her life to be....
