'Maria Toorpakai has lived her life disguised as a boy, defying the Taliban, in order to pursue her love of sport. Coming second in a national junior weightlifting event for boys, Maria decided to put her future in her own hands by going in disguise. When she discovered squash and was easily beating all the boys, life became more dangerous.'
This is part of the description of the Good Faith Book Club's next choice – A Different Kind Of Daughter, Maria's autobiography. We will be discussing it at our next meeting on Saturday, November 27th at 2pm in the Welcome Space at church. There's an open invitation for anyone to come along.
