I was going to write this post yesterday, but I honestly have so many thoughts about the novel I just read that I needed some time to process my views somewhat. This review is in no shape or form own voices, but I have way too many thoughts and opinions not to share them.
You Truly Assumed starts pretty heavy straight away, and I was close to tears in the first few pages. As a kid, I had this fear, and it is a fear of mine to this day. The fear of seeing my parents out the door and them never returning. I felt I was in the same room with Sabriya and her family with how my heart stopped for a minute there.
As time went by, the concept of the bombing started to sink in and right now; I have no other words but to say that you have to be pure evil to do a bombing because you are not only planning to kill a human you are planning to take away a lot of lives, for the reason that you can’t accept other people’s ideas and beliefs.
I was so happy that Sabriya started blogging because I believe that bottling your feeling is unhealthy, and she helped others with her words. It was fantastic to see the girls come together and support each other, even if they came from different backgrounds. I won’t lie; I loved how much the girls pushed for what they believed in. I gave You Truly Assumed by Laila Sabreen a whole-hearted five stars.
