Review: I love I Hate I Miss my Sister

Amelie Sarn writes a beautiful book, titled I love I hate I Miss my Sister that follows the grief of a girl named Sohane who has a difficult relationship with her sister Djelila.

It is difficult to read at times because the grief is so intense, but then the girls had an intense relationship, Djelila desiring only to be more western while Sohane seeks the roots of who she is, as a Muslim, as a French woman of Algerian descent. It brings up many questions about the freedom of women to make the choice to wear the hijab, or not. It also questions when such choices become more than just a free choice of dress and religion and when those become a fundamentalist problem.

Each sister brings something different to the tale, set in France, and is well worth the read. It will, like all good books, leave you with more questions than answers.
