Blog Tour: My Recommendations

AAMG Blog Tour Banner

Hello everyone! As apart of #AllAmericanMuslimGirl street team I am going to recommend you some stuff! Based on different aspects that are present in All American Muslim Girl. I won’t be including any links. Let me know what you think in the comments!

One image is from Google images and the second one is from GR. A few of these may have some triggers. I’ll list the triggers. I would also suggest looking into triggers as well.

Muslim Protagonist:

Image result for emara tv show"

Emara follows a young Muslim superhero in the Emirates. There’s a large focus on her family and superhero antics.

It’s been awhile since I’ve watched Emara so I don’t remember everything that clearly. But I do remember loving the tv show! 

My favourite part about it was how seemlessly Emara’s religion was woven into the show! She was un-apologetically Muslim. And that’s the kind of representation that we need.

Some other positives are the familial relationships, the setting, the plot, and the disability rep.

If you haven’t already watched it I highly recommend that you do! It should still be on YouTube.

Trigger warning(s): Gun violence, grief, kidnapping, and experimentation.     

Supportive Friends:

43927569. sy475

The Black Veins follows one of the seven guardians Blythe. Blythe’s parents are kidnapped in the beginning of the book. To get her family back Blythe goes on a road trip to save her family.

I really enjoyed this book! The friendships were absolutely amazing! Each character grew to be supportive of one another. 

The plot and the character growth were done so well. 

I highly recommend reading this book! 

Trigger warning(s): There are content warnings in the book.

About All American Muslim Girl:

42642031

Allie Abraham has it all going for her—she’s a straight-A student, with good friends and a close-knit family, and she’s dating cute, popular, and sweet Wells Henderson. One problem: Wells’s father is Jack Henderson, America’s most famous conservative shock jock…and Allie hasn’t told Wells that her family is Muslim. It’s not like Allie’s religion is a secret, exactly. It’s just that her parents don’t practice and raised her to keep her Islamic heritage to herself. But as Allie witnesses ever-growing Islamophobia in her small town and across the nation, she begins to embrace her faith—studying it, practicing it, and facing hatred and misunderstanding for it. Who is Allie, if she sheds the façade of the “perfect” all-American girl? What does it mean to be a “Good Muslim?” And can a Muslim girl in America ever truly fit in?
