Solid effort. Bisexual Muslim teen with warm, caring parents - here for it! Good rep re: other queer and/or racialized teens. Bit performative (re: social justice aspects). Lacked nuance. Quick read, but pacing... everything happened waaaaay too fast! And waaaaay too much happens!

beautifully written. I will admit the first thing that that caught my attention was that this was set in my hometown and I knew I just had to have and read it because of it. the story is inspiring and eye opening of to the tragic truths of immigration in the United States. Super happy I picked up this book
