Nancy Farmer s A Girl Named Disaster brings us inside the head of Nhamo a girl living in a small Mozambiue village Her mother had died when she was very young and her father had disappeared Even though her aunt and uncle took her into their hospitality it is very clear to Nhamo that she is not wanted there When disease strikes the village and her family is forced to visit the Muvuki Nhamo is faced with alarming changes Determined to run away to find her father s family she embarks alone to Zimbabwe This book follows her on this journey Personally I think the strongest thing about this book is its captivating setting Nancy Farmer uses vivid vocabulary to describe Nhamo s surroundings It made this book both captivating interesting and amazing However I believe that the journey continued for a prolonged period of time Nhamo was either constantly starving or thriving The danger she was always in lost its previously good effect after it happened so many times It became incredibly boring Also I didn t uite like the ending It was sort of bittersweet and I wished for a very happy ending It seemed that Nhamo nearly died just to be treated like scum again They didn t love her in the village and the didn t love her in Zimbabwe either I felt like I wanted all her hard work to be paid off Maybe I was just extremely attracted to her characterOverall this was a good book I was never clear if the spirits were in her head or real however Was this book meant to display the culture of Zimbabwe or was it a book in which Nancy Farmer was promoting the belief of spirits This was extremely confusing for me and I am sure it was for many other readers as well Further I got confused about who she thought was Mother Was it the Doctor Was it Sister Gladys Was it the mother in the magazine I wasn t sure I loved learning about the culture of Zimbabwe and Mozambiue I have never read anything like this book before and even though it has some faults I recommend it to all
