This book was so much fun to read. I loved Hana and her family. They were so warm, welcoming and interesting. I also really liked that Hana, the main character was a Muslim. The small insights into her life both as a second-generation immigrant to Canada but also as a Muslim in Canada was fascinating. I loved how the story touched on so many potential problems that are faced particularly by Muslim women. From the fifa rulings on the hijab that stopped her sister playing football, through to the stereotypes that Muslims have to face and the hate crime and abuse that so often Muslim women can face. The story itself was involving, although early on I guessed the ending, it was nice to see how the story got there and what happened to get them to that point. I also really liked how supportive Hana’s parents were and how they allowed her to follow her dreams. It was so easy to read that I read it in a couple of days, and would definitely recommend it to others!
