Product description

Review

A raw yet astoundingly elegant examination of identity, loneliness, and family that is unflinching in its honesty and power. Tahereh Mafi holds nothing back.

-- "Sabaa Tahir, #1 New York Times bestselling author"

Reads like a beautiful heart-one that shines and aches and yearns, and above all else, one that loves fiercely against all odds. A transcendent story about truth, love, and finding joy.

-- "Marie Lu, #1 New York Times bestselling author"

This is a gorgeous book. It's tender and fierce, beautiful even as it depicts some ugly truths. Tahereh's prose is passionate and honest, unsentimental and big-hearted.

-- "Nicola Yoon, #1 New York Times bestselling author"

It is not easy to incorporate important cultural themes in a young adult novel that also satisfies the social, romantic needs of teen readers. Not only does Mafi pull it off beautifully, but she exceeds expectations by delving deeply into characterization as well. Her writing is nuanced, smart, and lacks the sentimentality that often weighs down young adult books.

-- "School Library Journal (starred review)"

Visceral, honest...Rich characters, incisive writing, and a powerful story will thrill readers beyond Mafi's already stalwart fans.

-- "Booklist (starred review)"

Mafi infuses a contemporary love story with a heartbreakingly realistic portrait of one post-9/11 Muslim life in the United States. Mafi openly addresses many common misconceptions about Islam and what it means to be a woman of color in the face of racism, showing how differences can be applauded, not feared.

-- "Publishers Weekly"
