Set during the Islamic Revolution in Iran, 10-year-old Marji finds her way of life completely changed after the overthrow of the Shah. This memoir both visually and verbally depicts the impact of violence and religious extremism inflicted on Iran's people, and would be an excellent choice to gain a better understanding of the country's current political protests.
