“This is book for the ages that delivers a timeless and critical story about the importance of using your voice and checking yourself against the growing prejudices, hatred, and fear that can potentially grip our nation. A gripping must-read.”
—Olivia, One Mused

“At the risk of being bold, I would it up there next to The Hate U Give in terms of how powerful and real the message it contains within its pages is. We need more books like this one. Thank you, Samira Ahmed.”

“I am heartbroken. I am angered. I am inspired.”
—Lauren, Lauren’s Boookshelf

“Layla is a fantastic character who works as hard as she can and even looks death in the eyes at one point just to fight for what she believes in. She is strong willed, brave, and is a great role model for every reader of this book.”
—Jessica, Books 4 Jessica

“Layla is a beacon of hope. A hope that reminds us that anyone can resist.”
—Diana, D Wants to Read 

“This book made me feel. And it makes me want to help. And it makes me want to stand in solidarity with people treated differently because of the religion they want to practice or the religious clothing that distinguishes them.”
