Let Me Tell You
In eleven eye-opening and insightful interviews, this book reveals the lives, thoughts, challenges and hopes of coastal Kenyan teenage girls. Sarah Forde has spent years working and playing football with these girls. In the process, they shared with her their stories. They eloquently tell of fractured and yet supportive families, the struggle to stay in school, dealing with dawning sexuality, boys and men, and their hopes and plans for a better future. Here, voices that are rarely given space to speak for themselves speak clearly, with humor and grace.
