One on the best teen books I have read. It's not so much the story as I love the characters. Amal is a normal girl who lives her faith and I loved it. She is willing to stand out in the crowd and so no to so many things the world is telling us to say yes to. She is not following the rules because her parents are making her but because she wants to. Her explanations for why to her classmates is great. I also loved the diversity within those people who have faith and the range that includes. The ones who confuse culture and religion can be tough to deal with sometimes. Even though I do not have the same faith I was so glad to see someone who feels a lot of the same ways I do.
