"This book is Sonsyrea Tate's triumphant shout testifying to a life filled with grace and courage. It is a testimony for anyone who has to fashion her own life from the legacy of burdens and encouragement handed down by parents, by culture, by religion and by society. In other words, this is a story about becoming fully human and living life out loud -- on your own terms." -- Patrice Gaines, author of Laughing in the Dark --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

However, I had a hard time with the writing itself. Her timeline is off there is no beginning or end. Although she has chapters- the chapters doesn't help us. She could be walking to the store to buy something and suddenly we are back in time when she was stealing at 13 years old. Or she is thinking about her sexual relationship with her husband and suddenly we are reading about her parents views about sex. Because of these major shifts- I often had to stop, go back, and reread a sentence or paragraph to make sure I understood where she was going. This was very confusing and at times I didn't want to finish the book. But I wanted to know the end.
Sonsyrea wants to share with us not only her story but her thoughts, feelings, and every detail of her life. Reading long lists of her house shopping was out of place. It wasn't needed in understanding the major points, she was trying to make in her narrative. Often she spoke of the same thing over and over again. Making the same statements. I don't know why, but it was a bit annoying.
Her story is very raw and very real. And some places compelling. Sonsyrea comes off as intelligent but also as naive. And this is the scary part of the book. Because you know she knows better. You hope she makes the right decisions but she doesn't- but you hope one day she does.
I gave the book 3 stars because overall it is a good story, but editing is needed. Shifts were too extreme and sometimes it didn't flow as nicely, as I would have like to have read.
So is this a story about Islam? Not really- it is simply a story of a young woman's look on her life.
