Paris: The Memoir By Paris Hilton Book Review

Reasons For Reading This Book: Jackie Oshry from The Toast and The Readheads has recommended this book multiple times. What really interested me from what she said about Paris: The Memoir by Paris Hilton was that Paris wrote it in the way she thinks and speaks.

I was intrigued by this book because it intertwined two different topics, the American education system and refugees’. The summary peaked my interest and I couldn’t wait to start reading it.   Content of This Book: One evening Luma Mufleh, a Muslim, gay, refugee woman from hyper-conservative Jordan- finds herself in a pickup soccer game w
