I didn't hate this by any means but it feel short of its goal for an emotional and impactful read. The plot is really interesting but the entire book felt too rushed to make an impression on me. It felt like the outline or cliff notes of a longer novel. The characters were so black-and-white that any possible nuance was overlooked for a good vs. evil dichotomy. Again, this resulted in not relating to half od the characters and feeling like they were cardboard cutouts. I didn't feel the emotion that Saeed tried to write; everything felt so distant and rushed. The topic is important and fascinating, but I also think that Saeed didn't have to go to such extremes (the drugging) in order to tell this story. it struck me as a bit over-the-top in an already emotional and terrible situation. Lastly, I hate to say, the writing was lackluster and I just couldn't overlook the characterization and plot issues. ( )

Another excellent teen book by Aisha Saeed, actually her first. It was heartbreaking to read of this young woman's frightening clash with her familial culture, love, and independence we here count on. So well done! ( )

the idea behind this is great, and her author's note at the end shows the need for stories like this and representation of a situation that is still happening all over the world. (even in america, which would probably be the most surprising to people.) so the plot is good (with a lot of surprising twists that i really wasn't expecting; i didn't know anything about this when i started it, would have guessed it was a romance. the forced marriage part wasn't too surprising to me as it seemed clear she was being auditioned for the role, but the drugging her, the signing for her since she was too drugged to do it herself, the mother-in-law making the husband rape her, and the mother-in-law physical assaulting her in public were all pretty shocking.) and the pacing is good and pretty fast.

unfortunately that's about all. the writing is poor, the situations aren't described in enough detail, the characters are not fully developed. the plot is good but it doesn't rise organically for the reader; she's writing with a point, which is great and i actually really appreciate. but it's done too heavy-handedly, without room for the characters and story to breathe. in this case her message gets in the way of the development of the story, and that's unfortunate. i wanted to like this, but i just didn't. it's particularly a shame that the writing is just mediocre during the really surprising parts of the story. when she's drugged, literally force-fed and hardly conscious for her marriage, when she's being kicked - does she want to protect or lose the baby?, when she meets her mother again 2 years later (i can't believe she didn't give us this scene). there's not enough given to us, and that's because the writing isn't good enough to give the reader enough. it's really too bad as all the emotionally resonate parts of the book fall flat because the writing needs to be even just a little better. the plot itself will probably stay with me for a little while, but the book itself won't, nor will the characters.

Compelling and powerful. ( )

It was a page-turner, for sure. And it met one of my goals for the Diverse Authors Project: I'd never spent time in modern-day Pakistan through a novel before. But I found the prose unimpressive and the character forgettable. It felt like the book was walking its characters around to make a point, rather than having the point grow from the characters. ( )
