    Hayat Shah was captivated by Mina long before he met her: his mother's beautiful, brilliant, and soulfully devout friend is a family legend. When he learns that Mina is leaving Pakistan to live with the Shahs in America, Hayat is thrilled. Hayat's father is less enthusiastic. He left the fundamentalist world behind with reason. What no one expects is that when Mina shows Hayat the beauty and power of the Quran, it will utterly transform the boy.

    Story

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book, even though parts were hard to read. It helped me understand where Muslims' and Jews' slants on life come from. The book makes one realize what influence older people with slanted viewpoints have on younger minds and how people are driven to violent acts by something they were taught at a young age. The narrater/author did a fabulous job and it made me want to know more about him and his past.
