Ya'll...I cannot wait for this book to come out!
It sounds incredible and just wow. If Map of Salt and Stars is anything to go by, I think the Thirty Names of Night is going to be heartbreaking with beautiful language.

This beautifully written book is so hard to sum up in a few lines. At heart it is the story and history of the Syrian-American experience but so much more. It is two intertwined stories about life for the marginalized, the beauty of the world and the importance of finding love and self-acceptance. I’m going to have to re-read this a few more times just to take it all in.
