I have read this book twice. I am a college student taking a Sociology of Sex class. We discussed female mutilation and I shared with my class the story of Waris Dirie. I love this book. It is a very motivational book. It makes you think, If Waris could accomplish what she has through all her difficult circumstances I know I can accomplish my goals I have set. I have encouraged my classmates and my professor to read this book.

The story Desert Flower gave me hope and so much inspiration. Reading this story made me relise how lucky I am to live in a country with lots of fresh water, plenty of food and my whole family with me. Waris Dirie is an inspirational, couragous and beautiful person. I think everyone shouild read this book and I rate it 10/10!
Thankyou so much.
