In Najla Said's amusing and poignant memoir, she relates her struggle with identity as a 2nd-generation Arab American, the daughter of prominent Palestinian Edward Said, a baptized Episcopalian, and a student at a wealthy Upper East Side school in New York. Dealing with the potentially heavy themes of self-hatred, authenticity, and injustice, Looking for Palestine is balanced with good doses of levity and disarming frankness.
