Book Review: Hiding in the Light by Rifqa Bary


This book is about Rifqa’s journey to Christianity from a Muslim background. It tells a little of her life growing up in Sri Lanka and then her families subsequent move to America. Then, she shares her experiences in discovering Christianity and then her journey in leaving her home and breaking free from the anger of her parents and her decision to follow Christ.

The book overall was okay. it was a very easy read, not at all deep. I think it may have been better had there been a little more depth to it. There was something missing and I’m not quite sure what it is. My mom read the book also, and her comments was that the story seemed embellished in areas. It seemed to be a lot focused on the “me” aspect. It’s a story I believe that is written more for a teenage audience than adults.

I received this book from Blogging for Books, in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.
