This book is a moving and vivid depiction of the experiences of a young girl growing up in modern Turkey, set against a backdrop of extreme change as her traditional family moves from a rural to an urban environment.
It's a whirlwind of a book that rushes you from event to event. It took me a little while to get used to the style, but I started enjoying it soon enough.

It tells the story of a family that first lives in a village. An interesting thought mother is the markable character,i think. Even the sentences were short , you had to read them carefully. The writer has chosen impressive words. First day I thought that I couldn't go on reading,it made headache. But as I have never left a book while reading,I couldnt behave the same to this one, then decided to go on, and I was right with this choice.
