I recently read a book which is such a good read — funny and full of drama — as well as covering some of the issues which we might be thinking about during the 16 days of activism. It follows a girl named Nina, who has British and Moroccan heritage, as she struggles with her identity, her family life and a problem with alcohol abuse that develops after a relationship comes to an end.
