"Zainab Salbi was elf jaar oud toen haar vader door Saddam Hoessein werd 'uitverkoren' om zijn persoonlijke piloot te worden. Vanaf dat moment moest leefden Zainab en haar familie verplicht aan zijn hof. Zainabs moeder leerde haar dochter de technieken om hun onvrijwillige verblijf in 'de kooi met gouden tralies’ te overleven: verberg je gevoelens achter een plastic glimlach, zeg altijd ja, en probeer de misdaden die je om je heen ziet meteen te vergeten.
Toen Zainab twintig was werd ze door haar ouders uitgehuwelijkt aan een veel oudere landgenoot in Amerika. Ze besloot de banden met haar familie te verbreken: waarom had haar moeder haar enige dochter weggestuurd?"

my roommate found the book in front of our house between the bushes. We never heared of bookcrossing before, and it brought an extra positive vibe into our already positive house ;)
we are living with 6 people here and at least 3 people want to read it ;)
thank you it's an unbelievably cool movement.

A got the book from a friend while we were on a music festival. Haven't read it yet, but like the idea of passing through books to each other. It's more adventurous and personnal than a library. Have been 'leaving' books already in the elevator, while travelling. But never done it like this before.

I found the book on the train from Leuven to Mechelen. All the passengers got off the train and the book stayed behind. I picked it up, thinking someone forgot it... That's how the book just got a new reader! I'm planning on taking it on vacation to Greece, where I will read it, and bring it back. Returned to Belgium, the book will travel on, all by itself, looking for a new reader.
Maybe we'll meet again in the futur, who knows.

CAUGHT IN MECHELEN ANTWERPEN BELGIË
