Tamil Tigress: My Story as a Child Soldier in Sri Lanka's Bloody Civil War by Niromi De Soyza
Tamil Tigress: My Story as a Child Soldier in Sri Lanka's Bloody Civil War

I loved this book - Niromi's writing is vivid and creates the feeling of you being there with her in beautiful Sri Lanka. The narration is simple and effective and gives a real insight into the grievances of young women who chose to sacrifice their lives for a cause.
Kudos to this former militant who not only turned her life around but also having written a book in English her 3rd language, without a Ghost Writer!
I'll say this is a must read!!!
