I would recommend this book to anyone that likes literary fiction and is not disturb by a story that is gloomy throughout. If you like your stories to take you away to a happier place, this is not for you. If you need your characters to go riding off into the sunset, keep moving. But if you are not bothered by the fact that things might not get better or might just even get worse for your characters, then this might be the book for you. Great writing, a unique plot, a to old for her age refugee girl, and no nice little bow endings.
