Beginning with Love, Hate And Other Filters by Samira Ahmed and ending with A Very Large Expanse Of Sea by Tahereh Mafi, both books were completely unapologetic about the experience of growing up as a Muslim-American teen in post 9/11 America and rightfully claimed their spots on the New York Times Bestsellers list.
