Pv Reads: “Worthless Girl” by Clare Novak

Worthless Girl, which gives voice to unheard and unseen girls, has been described as “painfully beautiful.”

The story weaves together three BBC news stories from three different countries into a fictional truth about some girls’ lives.

This truth is a difficult one, told by an author uniquely qualified to write it, having spent time in each of the countries where the news happened.
