A brave lady,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bite of the Mango (Paperback)
I heard about this book on BBC Radio 4 when Mariatu was being interviewed. She sounded such a brave courageous person, that I had to buy the book. Once I started reading I was hooked. She tells the story of her life before and after the war with no hint of hatred. How can someone so young have such a wise head on her shoulders? I finished reading the book in 3 days and started it again. Bits of it had me in tears, sometimes with sadness, sometimes with her courage. But don't get me wrong, this is not a sloppy silly book. It is a book of courage and hope. This is one book that I will not be giving away, it will stay on my bookself as a reminder of a courageous young lady. Her cup is never half empty it is always half full.
