About this deal

The struggles she faced as a queer, young Muslim woman puts into focus the parallel strife of the everyday brown woman. I think the book will resonate with anyone who has had to fight to be accepted - whether it’s self-acceptance or acceptance from people/society.

From ‘time means everything’ ( No therapy for him, years of body dysmorphia, depression, anxiety, suicidal ideation, feelings of disgust, self-loathing, tears and hysteria every time I see a goddam fucking child that could’ve been ours) to ‘je ne suis pas folle’ ( why is it that as women we have to validate our stories? In other reviews I have seen curiosity about essays and nonfiction and I would echo these sentiments, hoping to see further exploration of writing styles.I can only hope the author was able to forgive those who wronged her and heal her generational trauma. This journal is a conversation starter on how to talk about what ails us only with our bodies so that we can start (finally, collectively) moving towards self love and acceptance on a holistic global level.

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average.

A few poems are touching, and deep - I especially enjoyed those in which she talked about her relationship with her own faith.
