Someone told me once that if you want a good introduction to a subject you know nothing about to read a kid's nonfiction book on the subject. My book club will be reading No god but God: The Origins, Evolution, and Future of Islam by Reza Aslan, so I wanted a good introduction to Islam before reading an "adult" book about it. This was an okay read. I was expecting more about how Muslim kids in America have to reconcile their religion with American culture. There was a little bit of that, but I wanted more. About half the book was spent on the history of the Nation of Islam and African-American Muslim culture, which was interesting but not what I expected either. ( )
