"I Speak for Myself" has arrived at the absolute perfect time for our society. I could not put it down. The stories that the Muslim-American women in this book have shared are heartwarming, eye-opening and at times, riveting. Each woman writes about their very personal reality and everyone reading will find someone to identify with.
Above all, "I Speak for Myself" reinforces the fact that, at our very cores, we are all citizens of humanity. I highly recommend this book not only for leisure reading, but as a supplement in the classroom. Choose it for a book club selection. The more copies of "I Speak for Myself" that find their way into the hands of Americans, the sooner we will be on our way to true diversity, in both our hearts and minds.
