Racist Orientalism yet again
7 November 2019 | by emgee-25627See all my reviews

A terrible, Islamophobic, racist overused orientalist narrative of a hijabi Muslim girl who is oppressed and severely depressed until she finds liberation through a non-Muslim white guy. Very original, and very accurate.
