  2. Kari,

    Thanks for opening my eyes even wider to the strict dress code and inhumane treatment of (many) Iraqi women. Issues, such as this one, go unnoticed by American young adults unless told in their vernacular. Such a frightening and depressing reality, translating it into a YA literary piece seems like the best way to convey CNN.com’s message to adolescents. Thanks for the article.

    ~Jessica
