I got goosebumps all over me during the part when her divorce was granted in the court. Maybe goosebumps of being overjoyed for the girl? :)
all of it
Of course being Nujood
Perfect - inspiring
Told in her voice, this is a moving account of the bravery of a lone girl, in the face of poverty and violence. Most of us cannot imagine the events of this sweet girls life unfolding within this story. I definately plan to follow her life as best as I can. Amazing. A must 'listen' to for all.
There is hope.
Nujood's courage and determination. I used this book as a companion to the text in an Intensive Reading course I teach and the voice helped keep the students engaged and interested. The story exposes one of the greatest middle eastern tragedies: the injustice and inequity for girls and women. Nujood's hope through the most horrifying circumstances encourages listeners to persevere.
You could actually hear Nujood through her voice.
What is memorable to me from reading this book is that this horrible "tradition" is at all acceptable. It is a tragedy.
Im glad this book is a choice for elementary students to read. We all need to be educated on this very important subject and try to make changes.
This book was a selection at my book club. I found the story very disturbing, as I imagine anyone would. It was very interesting to learn a little bit about life in Yemen incluidng the culture and practices. The history of marriage at such a young age was hard to learn of. I hope that Nujood will be able to acheive her dreams, but she has had a very difficult start.
While I recognize that the narrator was telling the first-person story of a young girl, I sometimes found her stacato narration a bit affected and an impediment to my being able to relax into the story. Because I have not had a chance to also read the book, I can't tell whether or not the writing style contributed to this as well -- but I suspect it may have.
I love the inspiration I felt after reading her story.
I recently read
I have not.
I wanted to share it right away with my friends.
I enjoy memoirs.
Simply written and read of such a difficult story
A Divorce party very cool
showing all the voices in a great role
