“Shannon makes Afghanistan come alive on a personal level that no news story can ever replicate. I biked with her up mountains, hung out with her colleagues, visited schools, and constantly connected with real people, both local and foreign. The most passionate pages take place in women’s prisons, where the women are jailed for ‘adultery’…because they were raped. The most poignant, heart-pumping pages are when Shannon shares her own deepest darkest secret. This book is a winner….and so is Shannon.” —Rita Golden Gelman, author of Tales of a Female Nomad: Living at Large in the World
