Showing of 21 reviews. The story of the excruciatingly painful life changes these girls went through, all because of their own belligerent father, is one we should all know. They also have no electricity or running water.

When our teacher told us to read this book one week ago I thought oh god, another boring book. ComiXology Thousands of Digital Comics. View zzna 3 comments. Their mother fought tirelessly for many years to get them back. Open Preview See a Problem? I could validate that choice, and the opposite choice made by her sister. Aug 06, Tammy rated it really liked it.

And they still didn’t get Nadia home. Sold 1 1 Jan 26, Sold by Zana Muhsen. However, everyone has hindsight and if we are honest, we can all look back on things and wonder why we did them, but they made sense at the time.

How could those Arab men “buy” girls from overseas, claimed that they’re married with documents whipped from no where, and without properly solemnised the marriage ceremony?

I don’t know what became of their father, the man responsible for selling them to two Yemeni families for pounds each. I agree with Carla that it is not Islam that is the problem.

I usually find autobiographies or books that are telling a real life event kind of boring, and I normally find myself skipping some pages. They are abused, raped, forced into marriage, motherhood at an age that most of us are thinking about rollerskating and having fun. I don’t want to sound unsympathetic about the people in this book, but I was surprised by how much Zana’s mother trusted their father.

The synopsis is well enough described throughout the reviews and book description. Views Read Edit View history. Although it’s not the most well-written book, i couldn’t put it down after the first page. Sold is the best an most emothional book i’ve ever read! I read this book about two years ago, and it didn’t make a huge impression on me as there are many other books on this topic.


Would muhse like to tell us about a lower price? Instead she thought the kids were going on vacation in Yemen. Admitedly this was back in the 70’s and 80’s, but still very disappointing to hear of governments behaving as Zana describes.

I’m happy already, and thankful every day for my comfortable home, stable job, unique muheen business, and fun activities. I am relieved that the UK has completely overhauled it’s attitude to forced marriages and Zana’s mother would get help and support to get her children out of this situation if it happened now.


I’ve tried to seek on the webto find some information about these personsand if Nadia Muhsen is still trapped down i Yemen. I wish Zana all the best and hope that she will be able to get her sister out of the country.

However, Zana’s thrilling and devastating experience had my eyes wide opened and I kept a firm grip with this group. Mar 24, Rana Abid rated it it was amazing. I never thought that foreign culture can be so restricting. Get to Know Us. Zana and Nadia’s sold them and two older siblings to people in his homeland – Yemen. That is a miraculous feat, bringing a reader to understand and accept a decision no parent could ever begin to comprehend having to make.

We can’t all write beautifully when we’re Holy shit. The excuse ‘this is the way its always been’ is an insult to all the young girls who have and are still been subjected to rape, beatings and being treated as slaves.

Memoir of two young English-Yemeni sisters who are ‘sold’ into marriage, literally, by their father. Jan 19, Camila rated it it was amazing. Dad, Dear Dad, convinces the girls to ‘go on vacation to visit family in Yemen’, where, upon their arrival at the relatives village, he sells them outright and returns to the UK or wherever. Also shameful is that England did nothing, until the press became involved.
