If you are looking for a good book to read that describes the horror that millions of young girls and women deal with female genital mutilation, then I would urge you to read Desert Flower, written by Waris Dirie and Cathleen Miller. I understand that there was a movie produced in 2009 based on this book that I am going to try to find to watch and pass on to others that I think will appreciate knowing about these atrocities that I can’t even write about without getting a stomach and head ache.

My best friend and I went totally ga ga over the book, The Outsiders, by S.E. Hinton, way back in junior high school. We completely devoured that book in a matter of days, and were most pleased to find that in 8th grade English class that it was one of the required readings, which needed a book report done on completion. We knew we had it made it the shade for that one, and we did.
It was most unfortunate that when the movie came out that we were not happy with it one bit, the actors that they had picked for the parts were all wrong and they left out so very much that was awesome in the book, but we watched it anyway, for what it was worth.
