Read in January, 2007

This book was a very quick and fun read, but had quite a few thought-provoking and culturally sensitive parts to it - which knocks it right off the purely chick-lit shelf. It's the story of a young Iranian woman, Tamila, who has the opportunity to leave Iran to come and live with her sister in Arizona, hopefully to find a husband and stay in the United States. Tamila's experience with this country is a bit lightweight, but very very enlightening in her constant constrast to what her life was in Iran.
