    As someone who doesn't read a lot of middle-grade, I was surprised to read a book so vulnerable, raw and realistic about Islamophobia. I think it's incredible that children, these days, get to read more diverse books like this when they're growing up.

    Other Words From Home follows the story of Jude, a little girl from Syria who moves away from Home with her pregnant mother, leaving her father and revolutionary older brother behind. It follows Jude as she tries to keep her Muslim values under the racist pressure of an America post-terrorism.

    As I said before, I completely adored this book. I thought the point of view of Jude was matured and contrasted; it showed that not all Muslims have the same experience, that all white people don't share the same views, and that mixed people are in trapped in between. The take was refreshingly unique and necessary. I can not stress that enough.

    My only criticism with Other Words For Home was the format as it did nothing for me. The book is written in verses (sort off) but they don't rhyme, nor do they have an interesting rhythm. It felt more like an easy way to write short sentences than an artistic, necessary way to tell the story. It didn't feel any different from ordinary prose, only shorter.

    I was just commenting on this the other day. There are so many characters lately with the name Jude. I have never, ever in my life, met someone with that name!

    What gives?!
