Desert children, by Waris Dirie. Dirie's third book about female genital mutilation (she was circumcized and infibulated at age five) ... this volume focuses on FGM in Europe, and the campaign to have European laws against the procedure enforced. I've read Dirie's previous books (Desert flower and Desert dawn) and highly recommend them.

Another for the list of great children's books on same-sex parents; the true story of an inseparable pair of male penguins (who had no interest in females of their species) who were given an egg to incubate by a zookeeper and successfully hatched and reared their female chick, Tango. The RL trio live at the Central Park Zoo in New York City. :-)

And a special upcoming title from our Fall Hotlist:

"In the Name of Honor", by Mukhtar Mai, will be released in October 2006. anotheranon, I'm sure you'll be interested in this, since you followed the news stories with me.
