About book I Am Nujood, Age 10 And Divorced (2010)

This touched my heart. How hard it is to believe that people actually sell their children off to strangers. This little girl's mother didn't even really know when the child's birthday was because she had 16 pregnancies and one was more than they could afford. This book got wide recognition with it's publicity, and rightfully so. Thankfully after a few months of being raped and abused this child managed to get to a court house and request a divorce. Although it is hard to believe humans could treat their offspring as this book depicts, it happenes, so people need to read this book to fully understand why and how. Thankfully the trauma Nujood experienced did not ruin her and she was able to return to school and be the child she was, one who thrived on learning and loved school. I really liked this book, because it was interesting reading about how tough her life was and what she went through with her husband. At the start she was living a pretty good life until this granger went up to her dad and asked to marry his daughter and her dad accepted it because they needed the money. He also swore not to touch her until she went through her first period. He lied about that. The only thing I would dislike about it is how she can be respecting her family? What was so bad about her getting help she was getting abused. Overall this book was great with all the tension from the beginning of the marriage until the court case.

Do You like book I Am Nujood, Age 10 And Divorced (2010)?

shocking, eye opening, and inspiring that a little girl could have such courage

Nujood is an amazing role model, but the narrator drowned out her voice.

A great story about such a horrible topic.
