    I read a sample of this one courtesy of Simon Teen Canada. I really enjoyed this one. I liked seeing how different cultures live their day to day lives and I am really hoping that Amina is able to use her voice. I am excited to get the full version of this one upon release....

    this was great!-Before starting this novel, I'd recommend looking into the basic facts about the Islam religion, or else the terminology may be a lil' confusing.-Amina was so so sweet! I loved to seeing her grow into her own person throughout the book and persevering through times that were tough. I...

    At first glance this middle-school read is not extraordinary. It portrays the typical storyline of best friends whose interests seem to diverge as they enter middle school. What makes it different is the fact that its titular protagonist also has to deal with a visiting Pakistani uncle who adheres t...
