Ted Bun reviews No Where Girls by Teuta Metra
Nowhere Girls is at one level quite a dark read, corruption and crime form the overarching background to the whole story. However, it is a wonderful story of the will to survive.
Superimposed on to this gloomy backdrop is the story of three girls’ attempts to escape and lead a better life. The girls drive and determination to escape the gravitational pull of Albanian society takes them along different paths. Paths that intersect from time to time enabling changes of storyline to flow smoothly.
A very different take on a similar theme to James Gault’s ‘The Redemption of Anna Petrovna’.
I just wish that the main character, Sara, wasn’t such an ‘Eeyore’ character.
