“‘Cut Flowers’ and Aneeta Prem’s previous book, ‘But it’s not Fair’, together provide a vital resource for children, young people and professionals on tackling these serious child abuse practices.
“Female genital mutilation is rightly a huge concern, and educating children and young people on how to keep themselves and others safe in the face of the abhorrent practice is essential. We are delighted to have worked with the Freedom Charity to develop ‘Cut Flowers’ and an accompanying PSHE lesson which we hope will be used by PSHE teachers across the country”.

I absolutely loved reading your book, it’s fantastic! Very funny and a powerful message at the same time.”
“What a beautiful story!!! I found some parts provoked tears to my eyes as I could identify with some of the descriptions with the experiences women have shared with me”.
