it was amazing
bookshelves: politics-society, young-adult, multi-cultural

Why do young wealthy Muslims who are second generation immigrants leave everything behind to go to Syria to join the Islamic State?
Reza, a Californian boy with Persian heritage, is searching his identity. How to be a man? How to be good? He's an excellent student despite all the partying, drugs and surfing.
It's not hatred that changes his mind, it's his longing for love, acceptance and belonging.
This different POV is thought-provoking and heart-opening.
