    "I think the best way to describe this book is 'beautiful'. It's really one of those that get you to accept literature as a form of art if you haven't already. It has fantastic writing, pacing, emotion.. Honestly, I could praise it all day, but I rather you stop reading this and go buy it."

    "As a Muslim revert living in America, this was a really interesting book to read. To see how different cultures are even though we share the same religion was eye opening. I support the LBGT community but I'm Muslim at the same time. Although this is against the religion aspect, I can't stop someone from loving who they love."
