Based on interviews with young women who were kidnapped by Boko Haram, this poignant novel by Adaobi Tricia Nwaubani tells the timely story of one girl who was taken from her home in Nigeria and her harrowing fight for survival. Includes an afterword by award-winning journalist Viviana Mazza.

A new pair of shoes, a university degree, a husband??these are the things that a girl dreams of in a Nigerian village. And with a government scholarship right around the corner, everyone can see that these dreams aren't too far out of reach.

But the girl's dreams turn to nightmares when her village is attacked by Boko Haram, a terrorist group, in the middle of the night. Kidnapped, she is taken with other girls and women into the forest where she is forced to follow her captors' radical beliefs and watch as her best friend slowly accepts everything she's been told.

Still, the girl defends her existence. As impossible as escape may seem, her life??her future??is hers to fight… (mere)

So interesting and heartbreaking and mind exploding. I remember the news behind the basis of this book and being horrified. This account is just as terrifying and sad. We all feel sorry for the girls and what was robbed of them. I am especially sad and scared for the girls that seemed to assimilate to their captor's lives. Terror is a powerful tool that even when it doesn't kill inflicts damage that can sometimes never mend. ( )

I am grateful for the authors who are willing to tackle horrifying subjects and yet do it with a deft hand. This book is intensely readable, appropriate for a teen audience, thoughtful about what Islam means to many people, even while exploring Boko Haram and the devastation they are causing. How do you do that with mass murder? With abduction and forced marriage? With the sudden blight on everyday life that may seem restricted in the West, but is supportive and loving? I don't know how she pulls all that off, but she does. Extraordinary. ( )

This is a wonderful book about a young girl in her early teens who became kidnapped by Boko Haram in 2013 (the year the film Frozen was released, as the book casually incorporated into the story's background information.) The first part of the book depicted the girl's life in rural Nigeria, her school, her family life, her church, her studies, her crush. The second part of the book depicted the violence and horror she went through in the Sambisa Forest after Boko Haram abducted her along with the rest the girls in her village. As the reader we witness not only her ordeal but how the girls around her react to the violence and pressure in their plight. One girl was martyred after refusing to convert from Christianity to Muslim. Another married Muslim lady was raped and died in childbirth. Yet another girl eventually ascribed fully to Boko Haram ideology and actively served to enact jihad. It's very eye-opening and makes me care more about justice and what other people are going through. I will recommend it to my children when they are older. ( )

This was harrowing, intense, and also super informative! ( )

RGG: Amazing story of the kidnapping of girls by the Boko Haram. The twenty-five pages at the end with the history and current status of the kidnapping is a bit dry but worthwhile reading. Short chapters, make this a page turner. Inferred rape, sexual abuse. Reading Interest: 14-YA

Overall, Nwaubani articulates in this intriguing story of terrorism and its human and material costs, the challenges of the twenty-first century. ... Buried the Beneath the Baobab Tree, indeed, pays tribute to the faceless victims whose captivity presents an endless certainty of trauma.
