The Qur'an, Morality and Critical Reason: The Essential Muhammad Shahrur eExandra GastoneSo I was kind ofxcited about this book and I initially started reading I thought I would probably Vermeer to Eternity end up finishing this ARC and giving it at least 4 initially started reading I thought I would probablynd up finishing this ARC and giving it at least 4 But my Heaven to Betsy excitement slowly petered out and I realized that I didn t want to finish this bookThe main character annoyed me Milena the MC who is pretending to be a girl named Alexandra Gastone tells usverything Now don t get me wrong I like getting a peek inside the MC s head and seeing how they function But this was literally inner monologues very five minutes She uestions her decisions her plans for the future feelings toward a friendand it was too much I thought this was a thriller so I "EXPECTED A LOT ACTIONOVERALL IT JUST "a lot actionOverall it just t feel that interesting to me The premise swept me off my feet but there wasn t nough action to hold my attention I feel like a bit of a black sheep actually because there are so many positive reviews about this book but this book just wasn t for me I m not Cabaret even surexactly where I stopped reading but I think I got through about half of the book before deciding to ditch 45After having the book blast on They call me Alexandra Gastone a couple of months back I was immensely intrigued by the synopsis In this day and age the story line is anything but far fetched and it definitely drew a cord watching the unrest in the Middle East that has been brewing for such a long timeOf course the book is not referring to this conflict specifically though it may have draw inspiration from it in part Rather It sets a very strong portrait of the thoughts and feelings a young woman has being raised with ideals and saddled with a mission that may not have her or a much wider populace s best interests at heart A reminder if you will of the heart ache that vengeance and misguided ideals can bring and that we cant see both sides of the same coin at onceThey call me Alexandra Gastone starts with Milena aka Alexandra or Lex for short Lex has been placed as an undercover sleeper op in a important position at only 7 years old Her goal is to grow into a prime position within the countries intel and gather it for her own Though doing something for your home country is not as simple as it is cracked up to be when motives are unclear and you suddenly get faces with hurting the people who have played a role in your life for as long as your own blood family hasLex is a very interesting character I adore the fact that she is smart nough to uestion yet loyal nough to hold on to her ideals She is not reckless or stupid but she is damaged giving her some definite flaws Overall she is a great persona to read through and I find myself drawn to the realism that comes with her thought patterns and actions Family is what could motivate a man to knowingly house a spy it could give him the fortitude to look her in the ye and pretend he cared The little bit of politics and world building surrounding the countries unrest is cleverly done and there is a good diversion of other characters to keep the story from becoming bogged down or to dark I could really find myself feeling for Grant and got uite attached to AlbertThe story is told in First Person all from Lex s perceptive It s a contemporary YA though probably better Alexandra is a sleeper agent into a CIA agent s home She has been posing as the man sAlbert s granddaughter for seven years and is deeply ingrained in her new life to the point that she is starting to develop real feelings for Albert and her boyfriend Grant However it is becoming increasingly difficult to juggle both lives When Perun decides to activate her to kill a man and bring her grandfather down w Alexandra has to make a difficult decision that could change verything This was a fast paced novel that I could literally not stop reading Alexandra is very impressive in her skills and dedication to the Perun cause However when she begins to doubt the group s intentions she makes way for lots of problems I fell in love with Alexandra from the first page and I was able to connect with her struggle to maintain her mission while also keeping those she loved safe I also loved Albert The thing that I loved about this book is it seemed realistic when showing the struggles that the main character went through Usually these books start with the main character having been indoctrinated to the point that she or she has turned into a cold killer but Alexander s struggles seemed to me a realistic picture of what it would be like to be in that situation The book had twists and unexpected turns the author did a great job of making you connect with the main characters and the nding was a cliff hanger that obviously makes way for a second book I highly recommend this book and think this is a wonderful debut from an author that will produce great books in the future I received this book from NetGalley as an ARC for an honest review. Eeds her at the CIA in five years’ time They need her active nowBetween her cover as a high school girl juggling a homecoming dance history reports and an increasingly suspicious boyfriend and her mission in this high stakes spy game the boundaries of her two lives are beginning to blurWill she stay true to the country she barely remembers or has her loyalty shattered along with her identit. ,

this story but hope another book will be written to find out about her further adventures I highly recommend it It has been uite some time since I reallynjoyed YA And this one did it somehow Or maybe I m such a sucker for wonderful grandparents storyAnother thing going for it is the subtle antipropaganda indoctrination which one can see around the text No longer a child I now knew why I d been shown the images and I also knew they weren t all true cWarnings should go with this 1 The political background here is abismal America is a bodygard to some invented Olissa country It s bodygarding its citizens uite a lot in some cases supposedly straight to death But in death they are allowed to keep their cultural diversity Which is totally generous They were just a bodyguard of sorts It wasn t the US government s fault American companies were behaving badly Companies behaved badly all the time all over the world c Yeah right2 The US guards Olissa against Ira and Russia And I won t ven go into the geography of this Obviously it s difficult to invent a country and place it somewhere not laughable Albert grinned ar to ar I got a call today Yeah It was from my friend at Princeton You got in You ll get the formal offer of admission in a week or two Lex I m so proud of you said Albert reaching across to pat my hand You re going to make a wonderful addition to the school and I know you

a little road trip and catch the game I know you probably don t think it s super cool to hang out with your grandpa but I can treat you to some Princeton sweatshirts and show you the best place to grab pizza What do you say I could feel my face burn as I fought back tears It hurt to see Albert soxcited He was going to be devastated when I simply vanished Of course I ll go to the game with you And Grandpa you know I love hanging out with you You don t need to bribe me I m going to miss you so much when I m gone I lo Good I was hoping you d say that said Albert reaching into the front pocket of his blazer Because that brings me to my second bit of good news Albert reached across the table and handed me an Exile and Pilgrim envelope I know you ve wanted this for a long time and I ve been putting you off but with the news about Princeton I thought it was time you got your way Withoutven opening the nvelope my heart "caught I knew what was inside Since coming to live with Albert we "I

regarding our trip destinations He always asked for my opinion but then chose to ignore it in favor of trips that were ducational and thought provoking For the last three years I d been begging for an adventure vacation in New Zealand full of hiking white water rafting horse trekking and bungee jumping I d campaigned hard but Albert had always put me off Given his age I never really blamed

leave him I knew I d made the right decision in choosing to save Albert I was lucky to have as many years with him as I did You need to bring me down off the high I m on What was your bad news I asked
