I’m so so excited to introduce y’all to the All-American Muslim Girl blog tour on this RELEASE DAY! That’s right! You can get the book TODAY!
This is such a gorgeous book inside and out and I can’t wait to hear what everyone thinks! In case you haven’t heard about the book, here’s a synopsis:
AAMG has received four starred reviews (from Publishers Weekly, School Library Journal, BCCB, and Kirkus, who called it “phenomenal”). It is a Junior Library Guild Gold Standard Selection. Publishers Weekly selected it as a Pick of the Week for this week. Barnes and Noble Teen called it “a remarkable entry into the contemporary canon.” And it’s a Barnes & Noble Best YA Book of November, a Barnes & Noble Most Anticipated Contemporary YA Book of 2019, and a Bustle Best Book of November.
Allie Abraham has it all going for her—she’s a straight-A student, with good friends and a close-knit family, and she’s dating cute, popular, and sweet Wells Henderson. One problem: Wells’s father is Jack Henderson, America’s most famous conservative shock jock…and Allie hasn’t told Wells that her family is Muslim. It’s not like Allie’s religion is a secret, exactly. It’s just that her parents don’t practice and raised her to keep her Islamic heritage to herself. But as Allie witnesses ever-growing Islamophobia in her small town and across the nation, she begins to embrace her faith—studying it, practicing it, and facing hatred and misunderstanding for it. Who is Allie, if she sheds the façade of the “perfect” all-American girl? What does it mean to be a “Good Muslim?” And can a Muslim girl in America ever truly fit in?
ALL-AMERICAN MUSLIM GIRL is a relevant, relatable story of being caught between two worlds, and the struggles and hard-won joys of finding your place.
I hope you enjoyed this little introduction to the book and go pick it up! Be sure to check out the rest of the blog tour that the street team is a part of below! Neelam has a wonderful post about why you should read the book! Definitely go check it out!
