really liked it
Read in January, 2010

I read this book because it has been chosen as the Pasadena's 2010 One City, One Story book. I really enjoyed this story of two families and two faiths both living in Turkey. One family who is Kurd and Muslim and the other American and Christian. After a catastrophic earthquake, Sinan and his family are forced to live as refugees while the Americans enlist themselves to help these refugees. Consequently, Sinan's daughter, Irem falls in love with Dylan, the American boy. Their love defies all of what Sinan and his family's culture has taught and made him to believe. This book is about respect, different generations, clashing of faiths, traditionalism and modernism. I would recommend this book to everyone.
