Author Khalida Brohi narrates her memoir, and the listener appreciates her decision to give voice to her unusual story of growing up as a women's rights activist in tribal Pakistan. The strength of her commitment to avenge her cousin's murder at the hands of her own family members underlies the firmness in her voice. Brohi recounts her childhood confusion at being told that girls "going wrong" bring shame on their families. She takes the listener into a world that is very different and into a family that supports the unusual teenager she became. Her loving characterization of her father, a man who invests in her education, and account of how she started an NGO in her village are reminiscent of Malala Yousafzai's story.
