This book is split into two. One half is about what it means to be a constant other, what it means to be perceived as both a foreigner and a westerner, a Muslim who is 'not Muslim enough'. The other half is about abuse and the aftermath: trauma, healing, and learning how to love differently. Both halves are about coming to terms with a patchwork self that is forever being split and stitched back together. 'Through this book, Amani Saeed has grown a new tongue to replace that which was surgically removed by institutional racism, loss and womanhood. That tongue will become a voice for the lost, the dispossessed and the furious dreamers of a displaced generation. Striking, strong and loud.' Joelle Taylor
