All-American Muslim Girl {YA Book Review}



Hello! I am Suzannah's almost twelve year-old daughter, Dylan. I recently read the book All-American Muslim Girl by Nadine Jolie Courtney. I am an avid reader and love young adult novels such as this. It was amazing. The main character, Allie, is part of a Circassian Muslim family. The thing is, her mother and father don't practice. The growing Islamophobia in her school and the world causes Allie to begin to embrace her religion. Allie is strong and brave. She is a relatable, funny character that kept me going through the whole book. I could not put it down. I was inspired by her wish to be in touch with her faith. It talks about important topics such as Islamophobia, racism, and finding acceptance. I will share this book with the sixth grade classroom library in my Philadelphia public school, because I'm positive that other students will enjoy it as much as I did.
