I love a good dystopian fiction novel, but mix in some super powers and this anime loving girl is in her bookish happy place!
This book itself is my love letter – to you, to black women, to women and to all those who understand the beauty that comes through struggle and the benefit of doing their own work to heal, to understand, to grow, and most importantly, to love more fully.

Ayser’s story is the perfect juxtaposition between the immigrant trying to fit into American society as well as the Muslim Arab raised in America that no longer fits into Arabic society.
