    1. What a sad true story, about Sameem who began life living ain a childrens home till the age of 7ys. Until her mother who had only visited her a few times decided she wanted her home. This is a terrible story of abuse she suffered and being slave almost to her family cooking cleaning and being physically hit for no reasons. At the age of 13 her mother took her to Pakistan where Sameem thought she had finally gained her mothers approval only to find she was there to be married to a man she did not [...]



    2. This book is a true story first person narrative about a British Asian girl. It is a survivor tale that opens a world that is unseen to most of the British public. Follow Sameem as she grows up and is treated so horribly by people she should have been able to trust. This is a gripping story that deals with difficult cultural issues faced by British children of Pakistani parents.This book is easy to read and understand. Sameem talks the reader through British Asian family life in the same way as [...]


    3. This was such an inspiring book to read. The childhood she endurded made her stronger and shaped who she is today and that says a lot about her! I was horrified that a mother could treat her child in the manner that hers did, I guess what really impressed me was how Sam handled her mother later in life, after she was grown and out of her reach. I must say she is a brave young woman and a true inspiration!! I wish her and her family all the best! HUGE thanks to Sabrina for letting me borrow this [...]


    4. This was a thought provoking story. It is very sad that this sort of stuff still happens in todays time. Just can't imagine going through something such as this.


    5. It was a good read but I must say I was annoyed by the main character a lot. Didn't see it mentioned in other reviews but what I noticed is that she wrote a lot of times that she would not give in to her mother but she did give in all the time. even when she had her child and he was about 3 years old, she said she wouldn't let him suffer as she had, but what did she do? She did go to her brothers shop to work for him every day even once she knew her son was not fed while she was gone and was bea [...]


    6. O Paquistão possui uma rica e singular cultura que preserva tradições estabelecidas ao longo da história. Infelizmente, são essas tradições que muitas das vezes servem de justificação para a violência exercida contra as mulheres, violência essa que pode assumir diferentes facetas ao longo da sua vida.Até que ponto alguém que não foi amado e respeitado, tem a capacidade de o fazer? Até que ponto são importantes os laços familiares? A distância destrói esses laços? uma mãe que [...]


    7. This is from a cuurent downpour of books dealing with abuse or heart break stories avaialable in cheap paperback form. I chose to read this book because although everyone has s story to tell, this one was being told from a perspective of a totally different culture. The story itself is heartbreaking, as is any story of the abuse of a child. The story intertwined nicely through her early years of abuse. I felt her pain which is the point of writing, to feel what another wants you to feel. But as [...]


    8. This book made me laugh, cry and want to punch a wall at the same time. I enjoyed this because of its a basic triumph story a child given nothing enduring everything to making it . If i begin to talk about this book i will give it away. So i do want everyone to read this because it does bring you into the world half knowing about by the rest of the world. Also, the authors voice was beautifully written into the story. Its like she's telling you her life while sharing coffee. it by no means pleas [...]


    9. This is a real life story. The author is now an elected councillor in moss side. As she tells the desperately sad story of her childhood where only the memories of her life in a childs home were the ones that gave her happiness, and those of the time spent with her family nightmares, you come to respect how much she fought to remain good despite so much evil being imposed on her from the people who should have loved her most. I spent most of this book holding back the tears


    10. I would give this book 10 stars if I could! I can't believe a mother would put her own child through the things that Sameems mom put her through. This is one of the most heartbreaking books I have ever read. She was given more love from the staff at a childrens home than she recieved from her owm family.I don't want to say to much about the book and spoil it for others, but I will tell you, once you pick this book up you wont want to put it down!


    11. Wat een prachtig emotioneel meeslepend en meelevend boek! Onbegrijpelijk wat zij heeft meegemaakt en toch nog zo trouw kan zijn aan haar familie. Waargebeurde verhalen weten mij zowiezo altijd wel te prikkelen. Ontheemd is zéker een aanrader voor diegene, die ook graag boeken lezen wat waargebeurd is


    12. “In Belonging, Sameem Ali describes her experience of forced marriage, a subject that is rarely written about by those who have been involved in it. It is a powerful and courageous account and offers a unique perspective on this important issue(Lord Ahmed of Rotherham, Co-Chairman of the HM Government’s working group on forced marriage 2001 )”An interesting read. Definitely worth reading.


    13. I would like to thank everyone who has taken their time to read my mums book and review it.If you would like to find out more news, future signings or just like to ask questions you may have then please feel free to join Sameem Ali's facebook group m.facebook/groups/8592057379Many thanksAz


    14. Poignant!! Angoissant même!! C'est l'histoire vraie d'une petite fille pakistanaise vivant en Angleterre, maltraitée et battue par sa famille, mariée de force à l'âge de 13 ans, et qui par miracle, arrive à se sauver de cet enfer familial et à écrire un roman pour dénoncer les abus et le poids des traditions d'une société pakistanaise mal intégrée, conservatrice et misogyne!!


    15. Wat een boek. Ik heb ervan genoten. Het is wel een verschrikkelijk verhaal natuurlijk, wat zij allemaal heeft moeten doorstaan zeg, niet normaal. Maar toen ik dit boek aan het lezen was, vergat ik alles en iedereen om me heen en dan is het voor mij een boek goed. Zeker vijf duimpjes dit boek!


    16. If anyone thinks their life was hard, they shld read this book. Talks abt the physical abuse a girl has to undergo at the hands of her mother and brother. FaScinating insight into a Pakistani immigrant's life in UK.


    17. I loved this book to bits I just finished it today I suggest to everyone to read this sad story and understand the whole concept of the book. I hope there's a book to read same like this because I love to read about people's opinions



    18. Hard hitting, tear jerking true story. This book was truly inspiring for me and I really couldn't put the book down. A must read.


    19. A True life story. Made me cry, laugh and want to reach out to the author. Hard to put down book as at every page the reader is left in shock at what happened to the main character.


    20. This is the best book I've ever read. It opened my eyes to so many things and omg it's just amazing especially because it's a true story and the ending is just amazing



    21. What a strong and brave little girl she was! Her childhood was so awful, she suffered so much and today she is a great mom, woman and wife :) An example of life, strong and love!



    22. Excellent ReadIt was written in simple terms, no frills, just an honest, straightforward story of her life, but that was it's power. The simplicity against the backdrop of the horrors of abuse was just powerful. The abuse made it difficult to read, but I still found it to be a good story that I could hardly put down. In the end she triumphed over the abuse and found love, happiness, peace and a good life. She was so deserving of the love that saved her. I could not wrap my mind around the abuse [...]


    23. This is a book that I had read quite a while ago, but remember quite vividly. I had read this book a few years ago when I was still an ignorant, naive little teenager that thought knew bad things happened in the world, but didn't quite grasp the magnitude of certain situations that people face in their lives. Belonging, as you've probably read in the synopsis, is about a young girl coming home to her family after 6 years in care, only to be abused, and then sent away to be married to a much olde [...]


    24. In many ways, I can relate to Sam. I find in most books about trauma, pain, and abuse they don't go into the way it affects a healthy relationship. When your introductory experience in something is one of intrusion, and abuse, it makes a loving and consenting one sometimes confusing. I appreciated Sam's honesty in how her trauma affected her relationship with Osghar. I am very proud of Sam for writing this memoir- telling your story is not easy to do. I seriously burst and audibly said "YES!" wh [...]


    25. Good book but you can tell that this is a Dave Pelzer style."look how horrific my life has been" News of the World style sensationalist book. It tries to stay off the sentimental stuff but just can't help it and turns into a complete sob story. Sorry Sameem Ali, you had a tough life but so have a lot of us but we don't write books about it, so why are you?
