Reread this one in preparation for the show (which I haven‘t seen all of yet but am loving so far) and also for #popsugarreadingchallenge task to reread a favorite. I read this one first shortly after it was published and I think I missed a lot of the humor because I was too young for it but I loved it anyway. That made it a good choice for a reread, because it was almost a totally new experience!
When I read the blurb for this book, I expected a fun, over-the-top, absurd, & silly story. And that‘s what this is. I laughed throughout this book! Simply put, it‘s a wild, fantastical ride! A singing competition held in space determines which species lives or dies. Eurovision meets Hitchhiker‘s Guide To The Galaxy.

#SorryNotSorry for the small photo dump from this book the last few days. An introspective look into our society when it comes to racism, pop music, toxic masculinity, intersectionality, and the entertainment industry from poet and musician Kyle Tran Myhre. Some parts got bogged down in technicality but the message was solid.

#Unpopularopinion time! I actually enjoyed it, & I didn't know who the author was beforehand. It needed better editing & some of the dialogue was unrefined, but I listened to the audio & the "juvenile" conversational tone makes sense. He narrated well, & after a slow start I became fully invested til the end. It's not for everyone, but this trip thru a tormented mind was pretty terrifying. The mental health aspect resonated with me. 3⭐️s
This was a good middle grade book. It provided a good picture into what life is like for a girl in a Muslim country, but ended with an optimistic sense of agency.

This was excellent. An important voice in the Muslim feminist movement.
