My Thoughts on Nothing Is Predictable
I recommend Nothing Predictable by Adalina Mae for a number of reasons. The story is not a traditional one. Zara's identity finds its way through her Lebanese and American roots, giving the story a multicultural outlook much needed in books. Zara travels frequently, showing the readers glimpses of other countries. What is more important, abuse and resiliency are central themes of the story. Readers see a woman fighting back the demons of her past and becoming a strong and independent individual. Lastly, the end is a call for more.
