"Friends come and go, but sisters are forever." Huda's back with a second book. In this one, she and her sisters are going to DisneyWorld with their family. A 24 hour drive. Her parents decide that the sisters will pair up for time at the park. They hit some rough patches, but in the end they bond, embrace their culture despite comments, sneers, and unwelcome touch, and have a great time at the "Happiest Place on Earth".
A super quick read. Love that there is big font in the text.

I laughed out loud several times, learned some things, and wished I could meet her because she sounds dope.

For insight into what it's like to have a modern-day arranged marriage (note it's not a FORCED marriage), for a funny story about finding yourself and finding love

This was like having a friend you can ask questions about without worrying you'll accidentally be offensive. Like the answer to the questions you want to ask but aren't sure you're allowed to. It was also HILARIOUS! And so, so sweet. I can never turn down a cute little love story!

And oh, man, was this funny. I laughed a lot, and those are often my favorite kinds of reads. Between moments in the story itself and the art that enhanced the jokes, I was positively cackling. It probably sounded a bit like my own zaghrit at times.

It's obviously a love story, and you pretty much know where it's heading considering the dedication is "To Gehad." That just makes it all the more delectable to follow along, cheering for her and thinking "Ooooh girl just wait till you see what's coming your way..."

There were also some good words of wisdom in there too, and one I particularly liked was when her mother challenges Huda, asking her "What, you think people who date first don't get divorced?" Like... yeah good point, right?

The main thing keeping it from five stars was the feeling that something was missing from the art style. It felt a bit awkward at first and took some getting used to. I think this is primarily due to the lack of variable line thickness and depth, which made it look very flat and like it was done entirely in MS paint. If it WAS done entirely in MS paint, then I'm actually super impressed. It took some getting used to it, but what she does with her art is fantastic and easily overrides any awkwardness in the style itself. The extra bits of humour and story done through visual elements added a lot to the story and the personalization of it.

PS - I read the foreword, and I recommend you do too. The "I don't sleep with my hijab on" disclaimer alone was worth it.

Thanks to NetGalley and Andrew McMeels Publishing for a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

Sweet/funny/poignant graphic novel about a summer family (minus one sister) trip from Dearborn, MI to Orlando, FL.

Another winner from Huda Fahmy.

Another amusing and enlightening graphic novel from Huda Fahmy about life as a Muslim American teenage girl. This one focuses on bonding with her sisters during a family vacation to Disney World. I really enjoy being exposed to this perspective that is so unfamiliar to me, and Fahmy keeps it light and breezy even when dealing with some heavy Islamophobic moments.
