In 2014, the extremist organization Boko Haram kidnapped 276 teenage girls from a town in northeastern Nigeria. Waiting for Hassana is a harrowing first-person account of one girl’s escape from captivity and a heart-wrenching lament for her closest friend Hassana — one of the many girls still unaccounted for.
