One night in April 2014, members of the terrorist organization Boko Haram raided the small town of Chibok in northeast Nigeria and abducted 276 young girls from the local boarding school. The event caused massive, international outrage. Some of the girls were able to escape and award-winning journalist Wolfgang Bauer spent several weeks with them as they recounted their ordeal. In Stolen Girls, he gives voice to these girls, allowing them to speak for themselves - about their lives before the abduction, about the horrors during their captivity, and their dreams of a better future.

This book gives a voice to some girls that were kidnapped by the Boko Haram in Northeast Nigeria. I had no idea of the atrocities this group is doing to villages, the families that live there and the livelihood of the people that call this area home. This is a quick read that I could hardly put down.
