Genital Mutilation "What Was Never Said" by EMMA CRAIGIE Author of the Week with Donna Freed
What Was Never Said is a young adult novel about 15 year old Zahra who is determined to save herself and her younger sister Sam Sam from the threat of female genital mutilation.
“An important, unsensational, beautifully written story that deserves to be read. The issue is dealt with head-on but the lack of explicit description of the act of FGM itself makes it just suitable for 12 plus. A good focus for teachers and students debating the issue in secondary schools.” Alex O’Connell, The Times
