Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Yousafzai gathers stories from girls around the world who, like her, have had to flee their homes…telling the deeply personal stories of displacement and disruption…In the girls’ own words, we hear about escape, resettlement and the conflicting emotions that come with fitting into a new place when so much is defined by where they came from. The accounts are intimate and…as if the narrator were sharing her story with a trusted new friend.” New York Times
“Uplifting…Each refugee’s tale of survival is equal parts devastating and inspiring, and the narrators do not shy away from the complex, contradictory experiences of fleeing a homeland…Yousafzai specifically states that her purpose is to transform refugees from nameless, faceless statistics into who they really are: humans whose identities are more than just their displaced status. A poignant, fascinating, and relevant read.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“Urgent, articulate first-person stories from displaced or refugee young women whom Yousafzai has encountered in her travels, whose birthplaces include Colombia, Guatemala, Syria, and Yemen…The contributors’ strength, resilience, and hope in the face of trauma is astounding, and their stories’ underlying message about the heartbreaking loss of their former lives and homelands is profoundly moving.” Publishers Weekly
