Stupidest Book Ever!
So on Saturday I was making up one of my fast days and decided to read a library book called The Bestest Ramadan Ever. Its for teens but I think that its good for parents of teens to read these book and get the low down. I thought this book like other teen muslim novels would show how the teen starts off badly but in the end becomes a better Muslim. So not! I want to hurl after reading this book. I realize that there are actually Muslims like this but this book gives you no hope. If you liked All American Muslim and didn't cringe, then you will love this book. Otherwise run for the hills. The character thinks Ramadan is a great weight loss program and that's it. She thinks she is great for getting through it without cheating but doesn't pray, doesn't give charity and doesn't even make dua for Allah to accept her fast at the time of fast breaking. Its unbelievable but it gets worse. During Ramadan she finally gets a boyfriend and kisses him! One of the reasons Ramadan is the bestest! Ahhhh.....Ok read this only if you really want to know how bad some Muslim teens are but otherwise forget it. The book ends with them celebrating Eid on the beach, not the mosque, wearing bikinis and hoping their future kids will be even less religious than them!
