I did not enjoy this book. I did not like what I perceived to be "Oh, poor me. I'm a Palestinian"

I read this EARC courtesy of Edelweiss and Atria Books. pub date 08/5/20

I can't hardly wait for this. September can't come soon enough. I loved her two previous novels and I am looking for her poetry collection My voice sought the wind, but no luck yet in my country.
