*We received this book in exchange for an honest review.*
Allie Abraham doesn’t like confrontation. But when she’s sitting on a plane and someone complains to a flight attendant that her dad was speaking Arabic on the phone, she stands up for him. When the man complaining sees that Allie and her father are related, everything is fine. That’s because Allie is a reddish-blonde girl with fair skin and light eyes. She also happens to be Muslim.
Allie is Circassian-American, an ethnic group originating near the Caucuses. Many Circassian were displaced after the Russo-Circassian War and largely settled in the Levant region of the Middle East. Allie’s mother is of European descent.
