A Woman Like Her: The Story Behind the Honor Killing of a Social Media Star by Sanam Maher

General Nonfiction

In 2016, Pakistan’s first social media celebrity, Qandeel Baloch, was murdered in a suspected honor killing. Her death quickly became a media sensation. It was both devastatingly routine and breathtakingly brutal. Qandeel had courted attention and outrage with a talent for self-promotion that earned her comparisons to Kim Kardashian. Her murder exposed a culture divided between accelerating modernity and imposed traditional values—and the tragedy of those caught in the middle. "An exemplary work of investigative journalism." - The New York Times. $9.99 Kindle / KoboNook
