14-year-old Samia is a British Somalian Muslim teenager, trying to come to terms with her identity and how life will change when her father returns home, a father she has not seen in 10 years and was presumed dead for a long time. What I loved about the book was the honest perspective and the interweaving of Somalian Muslim phrases and the challenges and rewards of being Somalian and Muslim. However, at the same time, the writing at times felt a bit forced.
