L'enfant mitrailleuse by Ottawa_Teens


Saints and Misfits by SK Ali is another book about a Muslim girl that deals with difficult topics. The character-building and the relatable narrator made this a really great book for teenage girls, whether they are Muslim or not. The book is also well written and has a good mix of humour and seriousness.

the book 'the misfits' deals with themes of self esteeem, family issues and incidents of rape and so it bring s up controversial topics .
