Wishlist Wednesday #5: A YA Contemporary / Dystopian Read!

Hey, (mood) readers!

Wishlist Wednesday is where I talk about a book that I have not yet read and want to add to my book collection. It doesn’t matter if it had been published before or a future release. All that matters is that I want to read it.

By the way, my actual Book Depository Wishlist can be seen here.

Why Do I Want to Read This?

I have one Samira Ahmed book, Love, Hate & Other Filters, that I have bought but have not read yet. Oops. But this one is also a book on my wishlist because of the intriguing blurb:

“Set in a horrifying near-future United States, seventeen-year-old Layla Amin and her parents are forced into an internment camp for Muslim American citizens.”

I used to be a fan of dystopian novels and I would love to explore this one. Also, I belong to a large family of Muslims. Though my nuclear family are practicing a different faith, I have been exposed to their culture as well as the disappointing prejudice and discrimination that they experience. I would love to know how this book explores that.
