About this title

Synopsis:

“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.”
 
Nujood Ali's childhood came to an abrupt end in 2008 when her father arranged for her to be married to a man three times her age. With harrowing directness, Nujood tells of abuse at her husband's hands and of her daring escape. With the help of local advocates and the press, Nujood obtained her freedom—an extraordinary achievement in Yemen, where almost half of all girls are married under the legal age. Nujood's courageous defiance of both Yemeni customs and her own family has inspired other young girls in the Middle East to challenge their marriages.

Hers is an unforgettable story of tragedy, triumph, and courage.

About the Author:

NUJOOD ALI was the first child bride in Yemen to win a divorce. Named a Glamour Woman of the Year in 2008, she has been profiled in the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, and Time magazine. She lives in Yemen.
 
DELPHINE MINOUI, a recipient of the Albert Loudres Prize, has been covering Iran and the Middle East since 1997. She lives in Beirut.

Store Description

Formerly Eljay's Books, Rickert & Beagle Books is still a weird little bookshop! Eljay's owner Chris Rickert teamed up with Fantasy author Peter S Beagle to keep the store open when her partners retired and this is the result! We carry new and used books of all kinds, but our focus is on Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror novels. We carry a large selection of mass market paperback Mystery, Horror, Science Fiction and Fantasy books, but we only have the rarest titles in these sections listed online so feel free to call if you're looking for a specific mass market title!
