My Thoughts: This book was both very boring and very fascinating. It took her almost 200 pages to get to her kidnapping, so the first half was just basically about her travels across the world. Snooze. But once she got to the kidnapping, it obviously got more interesting. I would've loved to hear more about what she knows now was happening with her family trying to get the ransom together. There was a little about this, but not much. But her story is horrifying and made my heart just ache for her. I just kept clinging to the knowledge that she escaped and that I know she's really okay now. In fact, she seems to have re-acclimated back to normal life very well and has even started a foundation to help Somali women and girls. I wouldn't say to run out and pick up this book unless you're interested in the topic or memoirs in general. It was good, not fantastic. Four stars.
