Couldn't put it down

This book is set in the amazing city of Ghadames,now a UNESCO world heritage site in Libya. Stolz explores gender roles, courage, and gives a fascinating glimpse into Berber culture. It's a beautiful, well-written book and provided my daughter and me with a lot of opportunities to discuss cultural expectations, and "doing the right thing."
