I read lots of books about different cultures, I think it would be interesting to do one completely out of my experience. Some that I've liked are a complicated kindness about Mennonites in Manitoba, in plain view by Jodi Picoult about an Amish girl charged with infanticide, the kite runner and a thousand splendid suns, infidel, secret daughter all about various middle eastern and Indian cultures, snow flower and the secret fan about Chinese culture in the days of foot binding.

Mandy | 89 comments I read The Pearl That Broke Its Shell for this prompt and quite enjoyed it. It was a story about two women who for a period of their life become bacha posh, an ancient tradition in Afghanistan which has girls to dress up and act like boys.
