Reviews

Extraordinary * The Guardian *
Sharp, moving memoir . . . Wamariya tells her own story with feeling, in vivid prose. She has remade herself, as she explains was necessary to do, on her own terms * New York Times *
Her introspection, honesty and humanity in sharing her story and exploring these questions are thoughtful and moving to read * Culture Fly *
A riveting story and one that, somehow, gives hope too * Stylist, Spring Picks *
Clemantine Wamariya has written a defining, luminescent memoir that shines a sharp light on the dark forces that roil our age . . . Her gripping and brutally honest reflections inspire us to count our blessings and summon us to follow her fierce and unrelenting example to try to help build the world we wish to see -- Samantha Power, author of A Problem from Hell
