Suehyla El-Attar Young is the perfect energetic narrator for this novel about Muslim sisters who are about to enter "the real world" after graduating from high school. Young contrasts the youth, enthusiasm, and idealism of twins Amira and Lina with the attitudes of their troubled older brother. The girls get a big shot of adulthood all at once when members of the Arab community in their Brooklyn neighborhood are targeted. Young conveys the confusion and conflicts in a believable style that reflects the age of the characters. Her delivery underscores all that is at risk for the young women at a pivotal moment in their lives and community. M.R. © AudioFile 2023, Portland, Maine [Published: OCTOBER 2023]
