A Map of Home

By Randa Jarrar

A book about a half & half girl (half Palestinian, half Egyptian) growing up in different cultures, forced to move multiple times throughout her childhood, and how these moves affected her.

The book is somewhat interesting, but I didn't care to some parts of it. Sometimes it felt like the narrator was trying to be funny, but it didn't really work. Other times the style changed too frequently and erratically. It was hard to stay focused. [292 pp.]
