Thought provoking but poorly written.
I really wanted to like this book. The subject matter is a serious one and the stories told are both shocking and heartbreaking. However the letdown for me was the bad editing (or lack thereof). I felt like Waris didn't have an editor to point her in the write direction languistically so it felt a bit lacking. Unfortunate because the message it gave is really a beautiful one.
This might be a better book for teenagers to read than adults. by Khrystyne Fiorentinounder review
