An amazing, but harrowing and distressing book

The Girl Who Beat Isis: Farida's Story - Farida Khalaf

A book recommended by Richard Dawkins. 


A girl who was sold as sex slave by ISIS. 


That gets my attention.


But it would be a hard read. Persons who are not sociopaths imagine the pain and suffering of this girl and probably feel uneasy when reading this book.


Adding this to my long list of to-read pile.
