Reviewed by Tiffany H. for Teens Read it First

“All American Muslim Girl” is truly an inspiring book. Allie is a really brave and caring girl. My favorite scene from this book is when Allie argues with Jack Henderson. I admire how brave and courageous she is; standing up for Muslims.

Overall, the book is just indescribable. It’s filled with twists and turns, capturing the reader. Also, it is filled with romance, adventure and many more! I definitely recommend this book for teens. In conclusion, I rate the book five out of five stars.

I read - and loved - Randa Abdelfattah's book, "Does My Head Look Big In This?", and have been looking for the American equivalent ever since. I am so glad to say that I have finally found it.

Allie's voice is so authentic and the way she expresses herself is like looking into a mirror of the mind in so many ways for me. Her desire to belong and understand herself and her place in the world is relatable. Her family is big, loud, and loving, and runs the gamut from devout to non-practicing cultural/secular Muslims.

A wonderful read for adults and teens alike. I'm definitely buying a copy of this for my friend's daughter, who is also a biracial Muslim-American girl. The downside of the e-ARC copy I was given is that it excluded the text conversations, so I feel like I missed some important info; that's why I'm going to buy a copy for myself, too.
