Win a FREE copy of I am Nujood, Age 10 and Divorced!


“I’m a simple village girl who has always obeyed the orders of my father and brothers. Since forever, I have learned to say yes to everything. Today I have decided to say no.”

These lines are taken from the new memoir, I am Nujood, Age 10 and Divorced, which tells the story of Nujood Ali, a young Yemeni girl who was married to a man twice her age and subsequently became the first child bride in the country to be granted a divorce.

Recently honored alongside Hillary Clinton and Condoleezza Rice as one of Glamour magazine’s women of the year, Nujood now tells her full story for the first time. Her unflinching look at an injustice suffered by all too many girls around the world is at once shocking, inspiring, and utterly unforgettable.

Nujood was profiled in the CNN World series Untold Stories. This segment provides a glimpse into her life.

    I followed this story as it unfolded some time back. I felt for that little girl forced into such a marriage but who also had the courage to defy custom and petition for her freedom. I would look forward to reading this book to fill in the details of her ordeal.

  2. Michell

    What a harrowing story. I will definitely have to read this one.

  3. Raymond

    Reading my way through The Punishment of Virtue which focuses on Afghanistan during the Kabul downfall. I would love to read up on another aspect of Middle East and this book provides a good follow-up. Please include me.

  4. This was a wonderful read. It was captivating which made it possible to read in just one sitting. I highly recommend this book.
