"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

I applaud Clarke for incorporating the international sex trade coupled with a horrifying tribal tradition into her plot. It's a tough subject, but Clarke's approach was as sensitive as it could be while still revealing some of the true horrors in this world. Overall, this is another solid read and I look forward to Amie's next adventure.
But, don't let my comments keep you from reading this series. All the books have been fun, full of African info, and lots of action. And I love all the characters. My comments certainly won't keep me from reading the next in the series when it comes out.
What kind of parent would send their daughters to Africa for them to suffer the cruel practice of FGM? But if that were not enough, Amie discovers that these children were never destined to go home. The more she discovers, the more horrified she is. She must get these children away from their abusers, but she doesn't know who to trust anymore.
Amie: CUT FOR LIFE by Lucinda E. Clarke is book #4 in the Amie series. I had very high hopes for this book, as the other three books have been superb. I was not disappointed. Ms Clarke has a gift for creating believable characters in a vibrant and realistic setting.
I was a little worried about reading this book because of its topic. But I am glad I did. Ms Clarke handles the topic of FGM with great delicacy, but also with realism. I was unaware how prevalent this barbaric practice is in the UK. Thank you for enlightening me, Ms Clarke, may you do so for others and bring an end to this abuse once and for all.
The story itself, like all the Amie stories, is incredibly fast-paced. There are so many twists and turns. Amie doesn't know who to trust and as a reader, nor did I.
I have loved this series. I absolutely and utterly recommend it.
