This book was ok. It was very slow paced up until the end. I did like the ending but everything else was too slow. The book wasn't too confusing, but the topic just wasn't anything I related to or found interesting.
I recommend this book to anyone interested in child marriage. i would give this book a 6 because it was slow moving. I more recommend this to girls or people who can relate to this topic and don't mind more of a slow paced book. ”
