Book Review – Girl Like That by Tanaz Bhathena

Today, for Abbey Research Reads, we’re looking at Girl Like That by Tanaz Bhathena. From an author who was born in India and raised in Saudi Arabia and Canada, this important, Own Voices empathy read shows what will be an entirely new world for a lot of American readers. Despite being YA, this book will appeal, and give new perspectives, to teens and adults alike. The story starts with the car crash death of sixteen-year-old Zarin Wadia, and goes on to describe the life that brought her there, and her experiences and choices as a teen with a reputation as “a girl like that.”
