    Inspiring read

    I started to read this book as it was recommended by a student. I had just finished I Am Malala and opened this one without any knowledge as to what I was in store for. Being immersed in two stories about the social justice for women's issues and education in jihadist fundamentalism has been eye-opening and humbling. I thank Malala and Amanda for the courage to share their stories. Amanda's wanderlust, entrepreneurial - albeit ignorant - experiences truly resonated with me. May they both heal and continue to lead the charge for their causes, for women worldwide.

    Astonishing read

    I sit here as a 34 year-old Canadian woman who has travelled extensively (currently on a trip in Iceland) completely in awe of this story. Amazement and respect are the words that come to mind when I want to describe Amanda Lindhout. I think every woman sees a bit of herself in Amanda. Thank you for sharing your story and inspiring me to do something better on my travels. I don't know how you got through it...but I thank you for taking me through your thoughts and journey through hell.

    A House in the Sky

    This true story is amazing. Lindhout survives the most horrifying experience and is able not only to forgive her captors but also establish a foundation to help this war torn country by promoting the education of woman in Somalia. She is very wise as the education of women is so empowering as Women are the first educators of the children and through education can bring about significant change. Amanda I have nothing but admiration for you and your strong spirit. She has my unconditional admiration.
