It's difficult to evaluate this book. It's very short (30 pages), which makes for a quick read. If the story prompts someone to learn more about the social/political issues involved, that's encouraging. I didn't feel much sympathy for the main character -- which is awful, considering the terrible violence committed against her. The message of the book was "idly share this news story on social media". I'm not sure who this book is supposed to appeal to; maybe it's best viewed as a document to shine a light on under-reported tragedy. 2.5 stars.

I'm going to refrain from giving this a star-based rating because my main issue with it was that I prefer longer formats. For those who enjoy this format, it's likely very good.
