This book was really amazing, it showed me the burdens of Islamic people and what they have to face and also the truths behind Islamic racism. I thank this author for opening my eyes to the two main character’s worlds; Zayneb and Adam. Both characters have a diary where they write about their life story and moments, the book shows both Adam and Zayneb’s part of the diary so we can get a better understanding of different problems and the story in whole. This book was very sweet and easy going meaning that the plot and story was not rushed, it was understandable, and everything was related to the plot. The happenings in the story were relatable in real life for all people of all race and colour, like when Zayneb got bullied on a plane because she was Islamic, or like when Adam had an illness, but did not tell his dad because he did not want to worry him. We all face challenges in life, and I think this book tells us that if we work together for what is right then we can overcome those problems. I would definitely recommend this book! @LibbyTeen of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

This book by S.K. Ali was so interesting! I liked the way the author formatted the story by making both main characters write small diaries of their days. I also very much enjoyed how it showed their perspectives and their thoughts about situations they get placed in like Zayneb’s issue with the woman on the airplane. In the beginning of the book when the character named Zayneb explained her experience with the woman on the airplane and her teacher, it related to today's problems with Racism. The author was able to make the audience feel the character’s experiences and put the reader in their shoes. I enjoyed reading their stories in their point of views. I strongly recommend this novel. I rate this novel a 9/10. :) @YoumnaLovesBooks of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library

Love from A to Z is a romance and young adult fiction novel by S.K Ali. It’s a unique story of two Muslims teens Adam and Zayneb who fall in love with each other. The story goes over the reality of islamophobia and racism making the readers understand the pain and brutal reality which happens in the book and sadly our very own world. Adam and Zayneb meet on a flight to Doha where they just meet as strangers and soon become great friends after they both share their life stories with each other. Zayneb has been suspended from her school because she decided to take a stand against her Islamophobic teacher. To forget about the whole issue Zayneb decides to take a break from things occurring at her school and go stay with her aunt in Doha for two weeks. Where on the other hand Adam has hidden a huge secret from his father and sister that he has multiple sclerosis a medical issue that took the life of his mother. Both are hiding things from their loved ones which becomes a connection between them. I personally just love this book its one of my current favourites and Love from A to Z has also been nominated for the teen top novel 2019 week 4. This novel goes through pain and love and social issues such as islamophobia in a very beautiful manner with journal entries going deeply in the situations. I rate this novel a 5 out of 5 it was just wonderful. I really hope this book wins the teen top novel reward it really deserves it. @Bookalicious of the Hamilton Public Library's Teen Review Board
