    Star Trek: Black Fire by Sonni Cooper

    Another set of books I'm slowly catching up on now, not having read when they first came out. And kinder on my sensibilities than the reboot movies.

    I just finished "Mornings in Jenin" by Susan Abulhawa this weekend.
    It was an emotional read that made me cry. It follows a family in Palestine from the 1940s until 2002 and how three generations of this fictional family are effected by real life events like the forming of Israel, the six days war against Egypt in 1967 and a massacre in Lebanon around 1982.
    Reading this book gave me a better understanding for Palestine and it's people as it's written by an American author whose parents are from Palestine. It also made me understand how horrible it is to live in oppression in refugee camps. So yeah it was an interesting but sad read.

    The book can be recommended to those who are interested in learning more about the topic and that particular POV.
