Don't Miss This Book! A Girl Like That by Tanaz Bhathena

A Girl Like That by Tanaz Bhathena is a powerful novel. Zarin Wadia has a reputation for being that girl at school, even though she's a wonderful student and extremely intelligent. She's the girl that you don't want to bring home to your parents because she's a risk taker. She doen't play by rules, she breaks them. So, when Zarin and Porus Dumasia are found dead on the side of the road, the religious police launch an investigation into the time leading up to their deaths. A Girl Like That is a beautifully written gem! It is a absolute must read just like The Hate U Give. Zarin is a character that you can feel and understand so completely. The novel is unique and endearing, it is set in Saudi Arabia, which helps enhance the feel and energy of the plot. The story will make you cry, feel angry, but most of all it makes you feel motivated to change our world. Tanaz Bhathena has a creative and thoughtful novel about our world.
