I hope you are having a great day!
Saints and Misfits
by S.K. Ali
There are three kinds of people in my world:
1. Saints, those special people moving the world forward. Sometimes you glaze over them. Or, at least, I do. They’re in your face so much, you can’t see them, like how you can’t see your nose.
2. Misfits, people who don’t belong. Like me—the way I don’t fit into Dad’s brand-new family or in the leftover one composed of Mom and my older brother, Mama’s-Boy-Muhammad.
Also, there’s Jeremy and me. Misfits. Because although, alliteratively speaking, Janna and Jeremy sound good together, we don’t go together. Same planet, different worlds.
But sometimes worlds collide and beautiful things happen, right?
3. Monsters. Well, monsters wearing saint masks, like in Flannery O’Connor’s stories.
Like the monster at my mosque.
People think he’s holy, untouchable, but nobody has seen under the mask.
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
I love this book so much!
It was so enjoyable and interesting to read.
Now this was one of the first books I read that was in a different view of the world, because before I mostly read books that was just the same kind of view and it did get a little boring after a while so when I read this book it was like, forgive my pun, a whole new world, one that I had never seen or experienced before, it was something new.
I really just enjoyed seeing someone who I couldn’t relate to, cause most of the time I read books where it’s very easy for me to relate to the main character, work through different life problems.
Have a great week everyone!
