To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Written in the first person by the middle school Syrian immigrant female protagonist. I would rather not rate it because I seldom like free verse, and this not an exception. I mostly feel free verse is an unsuitable framework for juvenile fiction, especially for fiction where I prefer a plot and a convincing voice. There are some special moments and lines, but mostly I felt like the author tried too hard and it showed. It did not feel seamless or authentic.
