4.0 out of 5 stars Widening my world view, March 23, 2007
This review is from: The Girl in the Tangerine Scarf: A Novel (Paperback)
While I didn't love the writing style in this book or find it compelling reading, I do recommend it highly for the expanded world view it provides. I loved seeing mainstream American life through a young Muslim woman's eyes. I found it interesting to learn the many varying views amoung Muslims about how to live life - no reason be be surprised by that but I was. Sometimes it is too easy to accept the flat picture of people and events portrayed by the media. That is why I often find for me novels are the best way to open my mind to new ideas and ways of thinking and being.

Khadra is a character I will remember because of her search for common ground with friends of different backgrounds and religion, her struggle to find what her beliefs were and how she could separate from yet still connect with her family and its construct, and her effort to find ethical work. I would like to get to know the girl in the tangerine scarf and blue jeans.
