One experience is not the whole story...
I wanted to like this book but I don't. I respect the author's experience but I do not believe that it accurately represents the experience of children growing up in the Nation of Islam. Her family put her through a lot and the NOI was only a brief part of her experience as a Muslim. The narrator was, in my opinion, not the best choice for this book. Her pronunciation and intonation was distracting and simply off. Overall it was an interesting story of one girl's experience. I would like to hear other people share their experiences of growing up X.

didn't meet expectations
I thought I would get real insight on the NOI but I simply some of the same I've heard on the street. the author told more about her family than about the nation itself. or maybe there's nothing more to know, not sure but overall the book left me wondering about what wasn't being told.
