AMERICANIZED Rebel Without a Green Card

by | Read by Lameece Issaq

Young Adult Young Adult • 5.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Immigration isn't a laughing matter, especially not today, but Saedi's memoir brings authenticity, honesty, and humor to her experience. Narrated by Lameece Issaq, the story begins with Saedi's revelation that she could be deported from the U.S. at any time. The audiobook mixes historical and political information about her country of origin, Iran, with personal anecdotes, '90s pop culture references, diary entries, and a social commentary on stereotypes about Muslims and immigrants. Issaq engages listeners with her compelling tone and is as believable recalling early crushes and acne problems as she is sharing facts about Ayatollah Khomeini and the American Hostage Crisis. This memoir presents a powerful picture of immigration from a young person who is trying to find her place in the world. K.S.M. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2018]
