What a wonderful way to start the week! Here is a snippet from an online review that a friend forwarded to me:
I loved this character and I couldn't put down the book. It was suspenseful, and at the same time, it was thoughtful and real. I felt the ebb and flow of Sam's emotions and her blossoming maturity, and I was fascinated by her journey into discovering her cultural and religious roots. I recommend this book to everyone, especially teens. It is unique, yet familiar in its exploration of a girl's journey to becoming a woman, and it offers a thoughtful glimpse at contemporary history. I found it to be thoroughly unforgettable.
