So I must admit first off that I do sometimes have difficulty with magical realism books, and that the fact that I don't always connect to it is on me entirely. The thing I really liked about it in this book though was that it was used as a mirror of sorts to explain the things that go on in our current world in terms of how immigrants and refugees and the like are treated. As such, I think this is a really important book, because it is necessary for us all to really understand what other folks are going through. Yasmine and Rafay are really likable characters, and watching their friendship evolve and become more complicated was really compelling. It is also sad that they have to worry about what those around them think, but it is also really representative of the real world, and the struggles people face from their families and friends. Overall this was a really thought provoking and important book, and entertaining too!
