Summary
"In this compelling and thought-provoking debut novel, after a terrorist attack rocks the country and anti-Islamic sentiment stirs, three Black Muslim girls create a space where they can shatter assumptions and share truths."--AmazonIn Virginia, Sabriya has her whole summer planned-- until a terrorist attack near her home. When the terrorist is assumed to be Muslim and Islamophobia grows, Sabriya turns to her online journal for comfort. When the blog goes viral, fellow Muslim teens around the country flock to it and find solace and a sense of community. Two more teens, Zakat in Georgia and Farah in California, join Bri to run You Truly Assumed. The three form a strong friendship, but as the blog's popularity grows, so do the pushback, hateful comments and threats. The search to find out who is behind it all begins. Now all three must decide whether to shut down the blog and lose what they have worked for, or take a stand and risk everything to make their voices heard. - adapted from Goodreads
