Katty Fallon Review
‘Cut Flowers’ by Aneeta Prem is, in her own words, a story about saving lives. It discusses the continuing threat of FGM (female genital mutilation) not only abroad but also in the UK. FGM affects around 70 million women and girls worldwide and ‘Cut Flowers’ explores how it individually touches two British girls lives on their summer break.

We understand most teachers feel they need good resources to tackle the sensitive issue of FGM, that is why we have worked in partnership with the PSHE Association to produces a set of accredited lesson plans which accompany the Cut Flowers novel. They will help provoke discussion and debate in the classroom.
