Novels different, but engaging
Lately, I have had more time to catch up on my reading for fun. My latest selections were two vastly different topics, but both I enjoyed tremendously.
The first I actually picked up after reading Maggie Moran’s review of it in The Tunica Times. I am Nujood, Age 10 and Divorced is the true story of a girl in Yemen. At age 10, she marries a man 20 years her senior at the insistence of her father. The book tells the story of the events leading up to the marriage and the aftermath. It is told from Nujood’s point of view, but makes a solid effort at being positive when it very easily could have been dark.
