Praise

“A powerful new autobiography…It’s hard to imagine that there have been many younger divorcées—or braver ones—than a pint-size third grader named Nujood Ali.”
—Nicholas Kristof, New York Times

“Shocking…captures the social challenges facing Yemen better than any scholarly work could hope to do.”
—Washington Post

“Her case has brought international exposure to the archaic practice of robbing girls of their youth.”
People (Four Stars)

“An international icon of tenacity and courage.”
New Yorker

“One of the greatest women I have ever seen . . . She set an example with her courage.”
—Hillary Clinton
 
“This book took my breath away. It broke my heart but put it back together again with a renewed hope in the staggering power of the human spirit. What Nujood did to save her life was a miracle; that she did it as a ten-year-old child is, quite simply, astounding.”
—Carolyn Jessop, author of Escape and Triumph

“Nujood and all other girls like her who are traded like objects deserve to be heard. This important book gives them a voice and sheds light on an ugly secret that has destroyed the lives of children for centuries.”
—Marina Nemat, author of Prisoner of Tehran

“Simple and straightforward in its telling, this is an informative and thoroughly engaging narrative.”
