Being the first one on Audible to write a review on "Don't Tell Me You're Afraid" when the audio version was released in 2016, I'm not really sure if this fictional story needed to be written in the first place, with the age that we are living now. I understand many times the female's perspective is an untold secret and the constant threats at being a refugee, but I just don't understand why the author chose to write in fiction about an young girl from Somalia, being an Olympian and her capture to be free. Was that really necessary to write in fiction? I mean, when you are watching the Olympics, there are so many stories on the athletes that it would been easier and more worth worthy to write a biography on someone that is a hero than an adaptation of a fable character and mashing up true stories together.
Giuseppe Catozzella is not even African. He is a popular Italian writer. He is not even a she. If you want to see true stories and see what is like to be a refugee from real people, watch BBC World. I actually got upset, looking up this author. There is no validation for this book.
