All American Muslim Girl Book Tag

Hey booknerds, today I bring you a book tag that I created which is inspired by All American Muslim Girl by Nadine Jolie Courtney. This book is incredible and I highly recommend you all read it when it releases!

Before we start the book tag here is the synopsis of All American Muslim Girl:

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?

The book tag has been created to incorporate different characters and themes from the book which I hope will intrigue you to read the book!
