I Love I Hate I Miss My Sister by Amélie Sarn broke me to pieces. For days I tried to piece those shards of my heart together again because the basis in reality of this book haunted me. While I knew about cases of Muslim extremists killing defectors in the most cruel ways imaginable, I was horrified by how Djelila died.
The contrast between Djelila and Sohane couldn’t have been more striking. Djelila rejected so much of her faith while Sohane was incredibly pious. Yet both of them had a difficult time living in France as Muslim girls. Religion is so delicate, and despite the personal nature of faith, it has such great bearing on our lives. It’s deplorable how some people use it as a veneer to destroy lives.
