Has anyone ever read Desert Flower a bio of Waris Dirie? Well it was co wrote by my professor Cathleen Miller! I read her book and it was an awesome read. I am not a fan of bios but this i enjoyed super graphic as well. Highly Reccomended!

Yes - it's a very good book and so sad.  It deals with Female Genital Mutilation - just a warning for those who may be sensitive to difficult subjects.

Waris Dirie is so beautiful and overcame so much!
