Muslim Girl: A Coming of Age

#ad
Simon & Schuster #ad - A new york times editor’s pick “it is a blunt observation, very american and largely unheard 9/11 kids who bear the destructive burden of that one day, a skillful unraveling of the myth of the submissive Muslim woman and a timely introduction to those other, reflective of the potent message she delivers to her readers, every day.

The new york times book Review Required reading from the founder of MuslimGirl. Com—a harrowing and candid memoir about coming of age as a Muslim American in the wake of 9/11, during the never-ending war on terror, and through the Trump era of casual racism. At nine years old, amani al-khatahtbeh watched from her home in New Jersey as two planes crashed into the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001.

Amani’s honest, timely, urgent message is fresh, and a deeply necessary counterpoint to the current rhetoric about the Middle East. As the editor-in-chief, she put together a team of Muslim women and started a life dedicated to activism. This is the extraordinary account of amani’s journey through adolescence as a Muslim girl, to the website she launched that became a cultural phenomenon, from the Islamophobia she’s faced on a daily basis, to the nation’s political climate in the 2016 election cycle with Donald Trump as the Republican nominee.

Muslim Girl: A Coming of Age #ad - While dispelling the myth that a headscarf makes you a walking target for terrorism, she shares both her own personal accounts and anecdotes from the “sisterhood” of writers that serve as her editorial team at MuslimGirl. Inspired by her trip and after years of feeling like her voice as a Muslim woman was marginalized and neglected during a time when all the media could talk about was, Muslim women, ironically, Amani created a website called MuslimGirl.

At thirteen, and amani experienced firsthand a culture built on pure religion, her family took a trip to her father’s native homeland of Jordan, not Islamic stereotypes.
