Despite her relative youth, Moaveni writes with insight and understanding about Iran over the past few years. The book begins when Amadinejad is elected and follows the changes that happen in Iran over the following years. It is also an account of a young woman who was raised in the west dealing with getting married in Iran. Despite what one would think, the book is not a wholehearted condemnation of modern Iran, nor is she an apologist. What it does is capture, affectionately, the sentiments of a country who, much like ourselves in recent years, are not represented by their elected leader. A must read for anyone who likes to get both sides of the story.
