I Am Nujood, Age 10 and DivorcedI Am Nujood, Age 10 and Divorced by Nujood Ali

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Deeply, deeply compelling. The story of a girl with amazing courage and resilience and such a full, generous heart.

No girl should ever have to live through what Nujood lived through, but far too many do all over the world. This child’s journey – finding a way to leave her abusive home, get to Sana’a, track down a judge, and tell her story – is a testament to the power of the human spirit.
