Sep 19, Evelyn rated it really liked it. This book is a well researched piece of fiction telling accounts of female circumcision in the Muslim world, specifically Sudan. This custom perpetuated by fear and men's power over women is incredibly inhumane and has resulted in mutilation and deaths. The author helps one understand the cultural forces that allow this to continue. Oct 26, Lisa rated it it was amazing.
Couldn't put it down. I read it in three sittings. Realistic fiction based on true stories of girls who become women in areas of Africa, growing up under oppression of many different types, including female circumcision. Makes me want to make a difference for them somehow.

So grateful I was born someplace else but so desirous to join Sigrid in her adventure to bring good change to the world. Jun 20, Holly rated it really liked it. I did a research paper in college on Female Genital Mutilation, so I was very interested in reading this book. I don't think the writing was all that riveting, but the subject matter kept my attention. I appreciate the opportunity to read about FGM from the viewpoint of someone who suffered from it, even if the character was fictional. Sep 04, Estela is currently reading it. The story is well written and very gripping.

Although a work of fiction it was able to bring you into the world of female circumcision and brought an awareness of the plight of women world wide.

This was a disturbing book. I have not heard much of female circumcision and it was difficult to even think about. It also provides a look inside the life of women in predominately Muslim countries.
