I highly recommend this book from about ages 10-16. There are some more serious parts in it, about childhood marriage, but this is still worthy to pick up as a physical book. I haven't listened to it, as I prefer the printed page. (audio books take me much longer to finish) I am hoping that this book will win the Schneider award, which is the American Library Association award for books that have some sort of disability in it. We need to have more of these books in our collection!

I listened to this from a free download and wanted to share it with our library customers. The narrator Ariana Delawari was excellent. It's about an Afghan girl with a cleft palate and what she has to endure. An great book for teens and young adults. (some mature content)
