    1. Muslim Girl highlights the struggle of American Muslim, Inaya, as she tries to balance her deen with wanting to be considered ‘normal’ by her peers at a new school. Readers watch as the devout hafiza (sister who has memorised the whole Qur’an) leaves the environment in which she is considered a leader to one where her conviction to dress Islamically is put to the test, and she finds herself wanting to hide her Muslim identity.Through Inaya’s struggle, Umm Zakiyyah does a brilliant job of [...]

    2. I hope Al-Khatahtbeh inspires young Muslim women to honor their religion while at the same time standing up for the innate right of all women to question restrictions that custom has placed on them. As a white person reading this book, it was a powerful reminder of the general lack of knowledge western religions have of Islam with resulting uninformed Islamophobia. Muslims, particularly refugees, living in western cultures are facing almost insurmountable obstacles to 'fitting in' while retainin [...]

    3. Based on listening to the audiobook, read by the author. While, I appreciate Armani's voice and desire to tell her story, this book isn't really about her pride in wearing the hijab in our post 9/11 world. I believe Amrani is trying to find her true self, but looks everywhere but inward. In her brief, historically innaccurate account of the Deir Yassin massacre in 1948, (as an explanation for why her family settled in Jordan) Amrani recounts the "European militia" that fought the Arabs in then P [...]

    4. I was excited to get my hands on Umm Zakiyyah's recently published book, especially after reading and loving her 1st "juvenile" fiction novel! Although this isn't a favorite/ LOVED it novel, I still enjoyed reading it and there is a lot to get out of such a short book. I have always loved reverts to Islam for their dedication to their new faith and way of life. I never imagined that this dedication could go to extremes, to the point that some reverts look down upon other Muslims. I don't think a [...]

    5. this was my first umm zakiyyah book, and i was very excited to read it; i love the umm zakiyyah facebook posts that pop up in my newsfeed occasionally, and i've heard a lot about umm zakiyyah's other books, such as if i should speak. i enjoyed reading muslim girl, and i never found myself bored at any point. it was an engaging, easy read. however, there were elements of the book that left me frustrated. the conversion of inaya's love interest seemed like it came out of nowhere somewhat. i didn't [...]

    6. I rated this book based on my own enjoyment, not on quality. There's nothingwrongwith this book, per se, it's just that-- as with all of Umm Zakiyyah's books-- I find that I know exactly what's going to happen before I even start the book. This one was targeted to a teen audience (people my age and younger), and it's basically what you would expect. Inaya, a Muslim girl who moves from Saudi Arabia to America, begins to lose her faith, only to get it back at the end. So predictable.

    7. Just finished this book. It is the BEST juvenile fiction story that I have read in my life. The main character of the novel is Inaya who lived in Saudi Arabia and moved back to USA to lead a "normal life", and joined a public high school. It is about Inaya's intercultural and spiritual struggles and how she dealt with them. It is a novel that clears many misunderstandings, breaks many stereotypes, and makes you realize that every believer is struggling to keep his/her faith safe and it is just t [...]

    8. I thought this was another excellent book by Umm Zakiyyah. The book is great for young adult reader, but truthfully I was on the edge of my seat during my reading. I'm one of those people who liks tear jerkers, and the is a good one. I would recommend this book to everyone to read, especially if your have children attending public high school.

    9. quick one day read. story delves into hardships a muslim teenager encounters in the states after living in Saudi. Not as intense as Hearts we Lost. On to If I Should Speak
