I didn t A World on Fire finish this book Theirst chapter or two caught me but I disliked the chronological lapses and she comes across as very new She s writing about things that happened in early 2016 and the book came out in October 2016 I would rather have read a Setting Them Straight: You CAN Do Something About Bigotry and Homophobia in Your Life few of her speeches rather than read about how she got asked to give speeches I thought the book lacked substance which was disappointing because I really wanted to know about what she has to say But I guess the point is go read her blog I have made it my goal to read booksrom diverse backgrounds and experiences especially in light of the election and the hate speech that has been committed by our President Elect towards a number of marginalized groups In my effort to look or diverse books I ound the book MUSLIM GIRL by Amani Al Khatahtbeh the creator of the blog muslimgirlcom I tossed it my reuest list and it arrived last week I was actually taken by surprise by how thin this book was in my hand 134 pages but the good news of that is that it was a 100 ways to Fight the Flab - and still have wine and chocolate fast read completed basically in an evening with the lastifteen pages saved The Oxford New Greek Dictionary for the next morning What I read was incredibly eye opening and importantAl Khatahtbeh was aourth grader in New Jersey when 911 happened She remembers many things about that day The Cello Suites : J.S.
