A 16 year old girl is taken away from her mother's dying bed at the hospital by four armed Iranian government agents. She is arrested and held captive in Iran’s most feared prison, Evin. This begins her agonizing journey through life. As a political prisoner, her crimes are reading books that the Iranian government deems banned and supporting opposition parties that openly criticize the regime for violating basic human rights. She is being terrorized for her belief that regardless of race, gender, belief system, religion, and social and financial status, people should be free to live life without restraint or fear of retribution. This is a true story. The young girl has big dreams and an even bigger heart. The girl loves school and has an unquenchable thirst for learning. The girl thinks she can change the world, and wants to speak for those who could not speak for themselves. As you turn the pages of this book, you will read what marked the most significant chapters in her life starting early in her childhood in Iran to present time living in Canada with her family.
