Editorial Reviews


"An excellent read! This is one of those very few books which you just can't put down till you have reached the end. Like Khaled Hosseni, Teuta Metra is a natural story teller. The events and twists and turns in the story keep you pondering as what's coming next. The striking contrast between the characters, their circumstances, struggles for a better future for themselves and their loved ones and the juxtaposition between the two cultures are very beautifully penned down by the writer. Looking forward to watching a film based on this book!"  -- A.Khalid, Goodreads, 5 stars

"This book definitely gives you all the feels and keeps you immersed, wanting to get to the end to find out where these friends end up. All I will say prepared for a full rollercoaster of emotions!"  -- , 4 stars

"This book really pulled at my heart with the way the author wrote about the struggles and hardships endured. I was constantly rooting for Sarah, hoping things would work out, that she would get a break and the respect she deserved. This book is no fairy-tale. It feels incredibly realistic in the sense that things aren't magically okay. The characters have to work for their lives and for some, things turn out better than others."

" 'Nowhere Girls' is an interesting look at the friendship between three very different women which is made all the more consuming by being set against the backdrop of a corrupt regime. The author writes well and her work as a journalist allows her to give a unique perspective and this certainly comes across in the way the story unfolds.I enjoy books which make me consider cultures other than my own, and reading of the lives of Alba, Sara and Ina, and of their individual struggles as they go about their daily lives made me appreciated everything I take for granted."

"There are some really powerful and significant emotions one can feel throughout the book and it doesn't come from the characters per se. It emanates from the author through her words. The feelings of anger, frustration at the injustice and the overall desire for change. Forget the side stories or the fictional aspect even. The book and publishing world is all about women's empowerment at the moment. It's a story about loyalty, friendship and strength in a world of gender inequality, abuse and harassment. It questions the boundaries of female friendships and what constitutes a real friendship."  -- Cheryl M-M's Book Blog

"'Nowhere Girls' is a thrilling tale of love, lies and the lengths a woman will go to for freedom. The title of the book says it all, they feel they belong to no country because they are not recognized as they are women, but if they don't belong in Albania, where do they call home? This reminds me of the famous quote by Millicent Fawcett,Courage calls to courage everywhere and I would have to say that bravery in the face of over whelming odds is the central motif of 'Nowhere Girls.' " -

"I was intrigued by the synopsis for this book, and was genuinely interested in finding out more about the lives of women from a country I knew very little about. Teuta Metra has created three female characters, who were friends when growing up in Albania, but whose lives have now taken very different paths. At times, I found the behaviour of the characters confusing and erratic - but that is coming from someone who has (almost) always lived in the EU!" --, 3 stars

"This book offers a great selection and combination of characters, timezone and  countries that add to its plot and structure. The author has a very good ability to describe her characters and their feelings even when dealing with them in different cultures and mentalities. The combination of her characters situations reflects courage in analyzing phenomena and describing the social and cultural issues in her country so good, it almost feels as if she experiences them herself. Judging by the interesting topic and skillful way of presenting it to the reader, I would say this book is a must read for the confrontation with important issues of our society but also the realistic description of its time." -- Saimira Tola Khouw, Goodreads, 5 stars
"A page turner and heartbreaking story. Three women struggling for a better life while living in a country where it is so difficult to survive when you want to stay out of trouble. Little, or no perspective of a future where you can live with your family in peace without worries. I do not think people in Europe know what is like to live in this small Balkan country. The corruption of the politicians, the bad working conditions and no work for the young people after they finished school. I did not realize it was that bad. " -- Trudy Schipper, Albeda bookclub
