Kenyan coastal girls talk about love, school, sex and football.
In eleven eye-opening and insightful interviews, this book reveals the lives, thoughts, challenges and hopes of teenage girls living on Kenya’s coast. They eloquently tell of fractured and yet supportive families, the struggle to stay in school, dealing with dawning sexuality, boys and men, and their hopes and plans for a better future. Here, voices that are rarely given space to speak for themselves, speak clearly, with humour and grace.
Praise for “Let Me Tell You”
“I couldn’t put the book down! These true stories are fascinating. The exploration of the sexual pressure surrounding young girls is well done. And, as a lover of football, I found this aspect of their lives captivating.” Dr. Margaret Ogola, author of The River and the Source
