Cultural inclusivity

It took me a moment to think of a good title lol

I would recommend this book to about any of my friends. You get to know so much about struggles as a teen new to the US. Laila’s father was assasinated by her uncle and her mum makes a deal with the US government to move here. Amir is a sweetheart by the way

Edit: shoot I’m a teen and it says I’m reviewing as a adult ,help

Amazingly Explanatory

I loved the way this book connected the personal lives of the people we see in the news with the way we see them when looking through the kaleidoscope that is the media. I also was fascinated by the culture-shock that Laila experienced when she got to America and went to grocery stores, a school dance, and the library. Laila is a great role model because she seems to, despite her family's past, value every life and realizes when she is not being a good friend and apologizes. She can read people and has a way of always getting the information she needs. Some may find her nosy or dishonest for this, but I see it as proof of her intelligence.
