I Am Nujood, Age 10 and Divorced By: Nujood Ali and Delphine Minoui

This book left me in shock. A ten year old girl was married at the age of nine and, after being raped and beaten, was divorced by the age of ten. If that isn't enough, this happened in 2008, meaning she is only 18 right now. In addition, she paved the way for young girls getting divorced in her country. It was all very overwhelming. I can't even imagine. This is a necessary book for anyone who wants to become a more educated global citizen.
