Editorial Reviews

Review
Aspires to nothing less than bridging a cultural chasm... Amid its witty aside sand tongue-in-cheek answers to multiple-choice questions, the handbook clearly stakes out a position for a moderate, flexible version of Islam, one that places a higher premium on moral intent than reflexive observance of every rule... --Samuel G. Freedman - New York Times

I believe it is a path-breaking and invaluable window into how some Muslim teens are coping with the challenges of growing up in the West. I found it both eye-opening and encouraging. It gives me hope for the future. As such, it is a must-read for all who care about the future of Islam in the West. --Dr. Jeffrey Lang - author of Struggling to Surrender, Even Angels Ask: A Journey to Islam in America, and Losing My Religion: A Call for Help

This is a terrific, personable, and useful book for young Muslims and for people of all ages and faiths including the secular, who are still trying to figure out the difference between a great majority of actual American Muslims--real people like the rest of us--and the crazed stereotypes generated by war headlines thousands of miles away. Full of candor, contemporary savvy, and wisdom beyond mere years, the Handbook should be in the hands and on the minds of inquiring Americans everywhere. --Michael Wolfe - author of The Hadj and Taking Back Islam.

"The slender volume aspires to nothing less than bridging a cultural chasm.... Amid its witty asides and tongue-in-cheek answers to multiple-choice questions, the handbook clearly stakes out a position for a moderate, flexible version of Islam, one that places a higher premium on moral intent than reflexive observance of every rule." -- New York Times

"The first book of its kind.... The handbook exudes an American perspective, upbeat and non-judgmental. It encourages teens...to make their own responsible choices about their faith practices." -- Christian Science Monitor
