Is there anything worse than a beautiful book that disappoints? Idk. . . probably not.
So, *insert heavy sigh* I might just have to change my middle name to ‘conflicted’ bc it seems like the most honest thing to do.
In a Perfect World is about an America girl who is set to spend her senior year...

UHHH, so this was fun and interesting enough but too much of the dialogue and the MC's thoughts rubbed me the wrong way. This book talks about Islam and Muslims and our religious practices a lot, as well as the culture given that this is set in Egypt - I understood the MC's thought process and th...

I was not prepared for the journey this story took me on. Trish Doller has given us a gift with this one. I love the culture of Egypt as we're witnessing it for the first time through Caroline's young eyes. Though she is miles & miles away from her homeland, she comes to realize that we all s...

She has done a beautiful job of showing how complicated life can be from all aspects: family, friends, love, religion, privilege, prejudice, and cultural expectations. It was a struggle not to...

Trish Doller did a great job at making Egypt and all the rich culture of the country come to life. The romance was sweet, despite the many obstacles the two had to face. I'm very happy with how this turned out!

More like 3.5 stars, I'm thinking. It was good, interesting, really cool to get a modern look into an Egyptian city and culture, buuuuut... I felt a bit like I was reading a travelogue, or a journal, so I felt somewhat detached from the characters. It was mostly descriptions of places and events...

I enjoyed very few parts of this book. I really liked when they explained certain things in Egypt. But this was WAY too political and was not the light hearted read I was anticipating.
