    One thought on “American Heart

    1. Emily May on said:

      But I wasn t done asking questions I was thinking that this would be the last time I d ever get to talk to a real live Muslim, face to face, and there were so many things about them that I just didn t get I really wanted to give American Heart a fair chance, despite the controversy surrounding it view spoiler and I honestly think Kirkus really embarrassed themselves and showed their star to be worthless hide spoiler I recall a lot of people blacklisted Forest s The Black Witch without having rea [...]

    2. Justina Ireland on said:

      I usually don t leave reviews on unless I love the book But since this author is directing folks on her Facebook page to upvote her book I m going to go ahead and leave my review here for everyone to see in perpetuity.Also, please note I am a published author and hold an MFA And I unfortunately have read this book So I am not some part of the unwashed masses randomly attacking her poor book like the author wants people to believe.American Heart is, page for page, a blatant homage to Huck Finn, e [...]

    3. Adiba Jaigirdar on said:

      This book was honestly worse than I thought it would be There is just so, so much wrong with it From page one.First of all this story is told in retrospect, which means that while Sarah Mary starts telling us this story, everything has already happened And that tells us a lot about the absolute lack of growth and learning that this character goes through despite everything She starts off the book by telling us I showed up with dark hair and dark eyes, and my mom worried people would think I was [...]

    4. Leah on said:

      fuck your white savior narrativesfuck using marginalized characters as a plot device to teach the white mc how to be a decent personfuck you for perpetuating the idea that marginalized people need to suffer in order to be worthy of humanity fuck this book and everyone who thought it would be a good fucking idea to my Muslim friends, i m sorry this book and this mindset exists

    5. Aimal (Bookshelves & Paperbacks) on said:

      Ah, yes, as if Muslim detainment camps wasn t bad enough, we also have peak white saviorism Because of course For a white character to care about people LITERALLY dying, a Muslim has to convince her that we are, in fact, human beings Revolutionary.

    6. Nick on said:

      Basically because I want to piss off the people who gave this book one star without having read it So I m giving it five stars also having not read it My instinct is always to push back on PC bullshit wherever I encounter it Have no idea whether this is a good book or not but FIVE STARS

    7. Celeste_pewter on said:

      The road to hell is paved with good intentions, and that s pretty much how I feel about American Heart I have no doubt that Laura Moriarty wrote American Heart with the best of intentions she s publicly stated that she wanted to reflect on our current political climate However, the problem with Laura s book is that she reflects on our current political climate badly with limited analysis of Islam, our political system, and world building and therefore, it undermines the entire point of her book. [...]

    8. Cathy Day on said:

      Because I m a fan of the author s novel The Chaperone, I liked her author page That s how I got an ARC of American Heart Moriarity asked if anyone wanted to take a look at her new novel, and I said, sure I ve never met the author As I started reading, I had no idea that there was any controversy surrounding the the novel, but as soon as I logged into to update my reading progress, I saw what was happening and was immediately reminded of Kat Rosenfield s recent Vulture article vulture 2017 08 the [...]

    9. Chantel McCray on said:

      Giving a book a one star rating without even reading it because you don t like the premise or the color of the authors skin is intellectually lazy If you don t like the premise, don t read it A better strategy if you re so passionate about it, would be to read it and then actually know what you re talking about when you point out all the ways it sucks To try to destroy a books reputation before it s even released is the equivalent of burning books to me If that s the kind of person you are why a [...]

    10. Abdal on said:

      The white saviour trope is strong in this one, huh Although I did have a little laugh at the earnest use of imagine in the synopsis If you are new to the criticism regarding American Heart and or otherwise want a thorough account of the issues present in the novel, please look at the article Let s Talk About American Heart by Laura Moriarty by Celeste P Link below Update 24 September Justina Ireland read American Heart and wrote a review available here medium justinaireland amHer review is worth [...]

    11. Miranda on said:

      Fellow white people Did you know that, sometimes, not everything in the world has to revolve around us I know this is a tough concept, since we ve invaded and colonized lots of countries and thus spread our white supremacy far and wide.But sometimes, we are not important A white writer should not have tackled this story, and neither should a white character be the center of it This book s very foundation is flawed and racist It should have been buried deep in a drawer somewhere to never see the [...]

    12. Michele on said:

      Full disclosure I have not yet read this book But I cannot WAIT to read this book We use fiction to serve as a mirror to our own shortcomings and I think many people will be able to identify with the protagonist who holds certain stereotypes until she meets someone who dispels those myths I think anyone who holds similar views to those the protagonist holds at the beginning of the book should be afforded the opportunity to meet someone who represents the cultures erroneously depicted in the form [...]

    13. Aida Alberto on said:

      I just finished reading American Heart last night and I wanted some time to collect my thoughts before posting my review because I went through all reviews on and saw all of the negativity posted on there Do I focus on those negative reviews or do I focus on the book I will focus on the book I really enjoyed this book because it gave another view as to what is tearing our country apart All my life I have relied on my belief that what makes our country so great is the blending of our people, our [...]

    14. Sana on said:

      No, I haven t read this Yes, I m giving this one star Yes, it s because the idea of a fiction where Muslims are in concentration camps and a couple are saved by a 15 year old white girl is completely revolting to me Glad that s cleared up.

    15. Samantha Londer on said:

      fuck this white savior bullshitad The Lines We Cross by Randa Abdel Fattah instead or literally any other ownvoices book.

    16. Crystal Alegria on said:

      This is one of the best books I ve read all summer The author does an amazing job of showcasing what could easily happen in this country if we are not careful and vigilant The characters have incredible depth, making it a hard to put down book The two main characters compliment each other brilliantly, each bringing vulnerabilities and complexity to the story Each of the characters, especially the two main characters, work together to become friends and allies, saving each other from the harshnes [...]

    17. Joanne on said:

      Note to self Will not read because Muslim detainment camps No explanation neededA Some people seem to have a problem with why I ve decided not to read this book Even though these notes are for myself, so I remember why not to touch books on these shelves with a barge pole, for those of you who are reading, you may want to read this review of the book by Justina Ireland.This book is offensive and harmful for Muslims If after reading the above review you can t see that, then I don t know what to [...]

    18. Clif Hostetler on said:

      Here s A LINK to an article in the February 4, 2018 Kansas City Star newspaper about controversy stirred up by this book I think it likely that the controversy has helped sales I ll admit that s the reason I purchased the audio edition of this book was so I could decide for myself about the issues raised I will address the complaints mentioned in the article at the end of this review.This novel describes a dystopian United States where all Muslims are deported to protective custody in a containm [...]

    19. Jen on said:

      I haven t read this But if other people are going to give it one star without having read it based on the premise alone, then I can give it five based on the premise alone What s the point of ratings if this is how we are going to use them

    20. Weston High School Library on said:

      Haven t read it but will do my small part against trolls who are trying to bury this book before anyone gets to read it.

    21. Aslee on said:

      this author man I just really want to write about a world where muslim americans are even oppressed so i can write about a white girl being Special me me im sorry i think i just had a stroke That s the issue here Believe it or not, it goes beyond the white saviour trope, although that is a problem However, I believe if this was a mediocre story about a white girl unlearning her racism after being faced with it in today s America, this book would have gone largely unnoticed The truly offensive t [...]

    22. Alice Lieberman on said:

      I was able to get an advance copy of American Heart, by Laura Moriarty, which is due out in January, 2018 I have read all of Moriarty s books because she has such an uncanny talent for giving voice to her young female characters This book is no exception I live near the area where the book takes place, in the heart of Missouri Its population includes poor, mostly White, deeply religious families The children in these families are often required to learn life lessons pretty quickly they have few [...]

    23. DMG Byrnes on said:

      NO NO NO NO NO STOP with the white savior narratives So disgusted and mad I can t evenI mean, did you READ the blurb NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO STOP IT I m sick of narrative how tos on empathy and caring about anyone outside of yourself or that looks like you Above all, LISTEN to the comments from Muslim reviewers To ignore them is to ignore what should be part of your target audience If they are not part your target audience, then perhaps rethink the book you re writing if it includes Muslim Am [...]

    24. Ellen Lee on said:

      So everyone is rating this book with one star although they say they haven t read it and will never read it.Alrighty then, I m rating it five stars although I haven t read it but will read it.My rating is based on the starred Kirkus review which was written by a Muslim American woman that praised the novel s frighteningly believable setting of fear and violent nativism gone awry.

    25. Shenwei on said:

      how many white savior type books will publishing shit out before it realizes they are garbage and dehumanizing and 1000% unnecessary and not the diversity we need I have a thread with books by Muslim authors to support instead twitter theshenners statu

    26. Sean R. on said:

      hahaha great, another book for people to yell about and feel better for yelling about jeez.

    27. Ann Elise Monte on said:

      No No no no And no.Enough white people capitalising on brown people s pain Enough white saviour narratives Go seek out books written by Muslims instead of this thing.

    28. Kayla Bashe on said:

      As a Jewish person who grew up hearing stories from Holocaust survivors, whose family was close personal friends with the late Eli Wiesel, and whose own ancestors left Europe just before the camps started, I feel that this book is exploitative and unnecessary, and that the author should have been considerate.

    29. Wendy Richards on said:

      I cannot wait to read this book If people actually followed up instead of insisting they knew what it was without any clue, this world would be far better off.

    30. Jeanpaul on said:

      This is a fine YA novel written by a veteran novelist who took the time and effort to make sure this book was careful with its narrative to be culturally sensitive to all races, creeds, ethnicities, and religions It is in line with such novels as 1984, Slaughter House Five, For Whom the Bell Tolls, and Schindler s List in that it is a social criticism in which it portrays characters that are xenophobic or racist in its criticism of xenophobia and racism It is an important YA book that will embol [...]
