Really enjoyed this book. It was a bit of a tearjerker.

I loved this! It was a great mix between autobiography and inspirational with some comedy thrown in. Shonda was so honest about her life make it feel like she‘s a friend and very relatable.

Written in 2015 but still incredibly relevant to what‘s occurring in Palestine. It was a quick read (204 pages) that‘s describes the past, then present, and future of Palestine. I highly recommend for those interested in learning more Palestine. 🇵🇸

This wasn‘t as good as Daisy Jones & The Six or The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo but it was a fun, quick read.

Very inspiration. I‘m not a huge autobiography reader but this one was very well done. I highly recommend.

This book was incredible! It was an emotional roller coaster filled with heartbreak and love. I was in a bit of a reading slump before picking this up but thankfully it pulled me out of it. I highly recommend but have some tissues on hand.

A very slow buildup. I struggled to get halfway through this but hopeful that it‘ll pick up.

It isn‘t my favorite book but I‘m glad I finished it. Parts were bland but others were very interesting. I recommend.

I finished this book in one sitting. It‘s not a self-help or “how to” book. It‘s a real man‘s story of his drive and ambition to make it in a country he was told to get out of. It is a quick, easy read. I recommend this to every one, especially immigrants or first-generation immigrants who have been told to “Go Back To Your Country.” Reading this gave me an ambition to do better. I commend Issa for his honesty about his life and journey.

A quick, light read with racial undertones. Some characters weren‘t as developed as I would have liked them to be and I saw the plot twist coming. Overall a good read.

I cannot remember the last time a book made me laugh out loud as much as this one. A good read for Egyptians and non-Egyptians to get a better understanding of the Egyptian revolutions. I enjoyed that Bassem didn‘t put his political views in the book and remained unbias. I recommend.

Loved this book! It was a little slow in the beginning because I didn‘t have an interest in the characters but couldn‘t put it down towards the end. I didn‘t see a lot of things coming, which I loved. Highly recommend this and Daisy Jones and the Six by the same author.
