In her last year before graduation, life for Yuni should be full of time spent with her girlfriends, harmless crushes on teachers, and thinking about the possibilities of attending college. And it is, to be sure. If only the prospect of getting married wasn’t complicating things. Smart, beautiful, and at the top of her class, Yuni faces a marriage proposal from a boy’s family she’s never met. The pressure to not only accept, but to do so quickly and be grateful for the offer, weighs heavily against her school counselor’s support to consider her academic dreams. Yuni witnesses classmates’ lives change with unexpected pregnancies and forced marriages, and she meets a female salon owner living an independent single life. The paths of those around her certainly don’t make Yuni’s decision any easier. A coming-of-age story of girls forced to grow up too soon, YUNI offers a story of rare courage against the backdrop of strict traditions and stifling expectations. —A.B.
