"This is an honest and engaging story of the struggles and triumphs of a Canadian Muslim woman. Farheen Khan demonstrates in a charming and humble manner how we all need faith, family and friends to bring us through the dark times and reconnect with our true selves."
-Dr. Ingrid Mattson, President, Islamic Society of North America (ISNA)

"Farheen's story of victory over spiritual and physical hardships speaks to the point that we often overlook the cures in front of us. As a result, we find ourselves embracing irrational behavior, and belief in our arrogance. As a black man in the world, I was taught to be a warrior because true success as an African American is defined by how well I play with "injury." Farheen demonstrates the ultimate "Think Blackness" in that she exhibits that above all trials and tribulations Allah (God) is just, merciful, and ever-present. To my little sister, I thank you. You remind us all that playing with "injuries" is not how we are limited. But ultimately how we are tested. Indeed Allah is God. Keep it Simple."

    " It was more a book about how a traumatic event in her life, caused her to have doubts about everything thus far in her life. How it changed how she behaved and ultimately how she overcame. "
