I just finished “I am Nujood, Age 10 and Divorced”. I started it this afternoon. While it is definitely not a long book I could not put it down. I am blessed to live where I do and to be raising my family here.
I had read a blog awhile back recommending it. I was lucky enough that my local library had it, though the waiting list was long. I was 7th in line. I had honestly forgotten about it until I got the call that it was in. I am very happy to have read it.
I am a adv it reader. Mostly romance, something to disappear into during nap time and at the end of the day. I am a very emotional, pregnant woman, I cry during commericals. Reading this book and the horror that this child lived through, I didn’t cry. At the end, I sobbed. Reading how much she is like every other 10 year child in so many ways, yet has been robbed of her innocence.
