Peer Response

I also agree with what my classmates are saying about how it was interesting that Ali included 9/11 in the story. It is easy for us to forget that the US is important, and when tragedy struck, it effected a lot of the world. It just seems crazy to me because it’s not like Nazneen or Chanu had any ties to America at all, and they were even having a hard time adjusting to western culture. It just goes to show that Ali wrote this novel with huge cultural implications behind it.  Overall, I think Ali was able to write a novel that deeply explored differentiating cultures.
