(Why am I always the black sheep? Like seriously, someone smother my disagreeable brain please.)
While I think this book has an excellent message and is an entirely IMPORTANT read, I sadly didn't fall in love with it. For me reading, I felt like it was 93% political agenda and 7% story about two t...

4 strong stars! (Alternate title to WHEN MICHAEL MET MINA.)
I must have been sleeping under a rock for the last couple months, because I wasn't aware that this was the US release for WMMM. Embarrassingly, I was waiting for the better part of a year for Book Depository to get it back in stock &...

It's so much easier to live in a world where everything is black and white.
When Michael Met Mina is such a relevant book for today's society. Turn on the TV or the radio and listen or watch for long enough and you're bound to hear something in regards to immigrants, boat people, asylum seekers,...

Growing up in Western Sydney, the "ethnic hub" of NSW, I feel like I have been pretty sheltered to the wider racist views that exist in the Australia community - it only really became apparent to me once I started university.
For that reason, When Michael Met Mina was such a powerful read for me...

Full review originally posted on my blog: Word Wonders
This was hands down the most difficult book I’ve had to read in my life. It’s just too personal and real to be an easy read, it hit too close to home, add that to the fact that I read it during a very difficult week for the muslim communit...

If there is one Aussie YA book that you will pick up, let it be When Michael Met Mina.
The way it addresses social commentary and current political issues about border control, refugees and racism has never been more important...

My tongue is tripping over the terrifically timely topics touched in The Lines We Cross. Universally relevant, remarkably well written; my personal recommendation for required reading resonates with me in an invigorating, inspirational way.
Generally, offspring look up to their parents, seeing the...
