    I thought this book was amazing.

The chara...

When a girl starts to befriend Amina's best friend, she feels threatened. On top of that, her uncle is visiting her family, so she has to behave w...

But I will try anyway.It is raw and honest and literally, Amina's voice is very pure and innocent which makes the whole book very delightful. I love the family and sibling ...
