This book is unique, in the fact that it introduces a whole new way of living within the same world. Based in America, the book starts off by explaining who the characters used to be, and progresses to telling what they've lost, and how they still remain in the shadows of the past. As Laila explains perfectly, her life is divided between the Old Life, and the New Life. While Laila tries hard to fit in, the book describes the alien way that America seems, from cereal to high school dances. Even the ideas people have about Laila's life are seemingly upside down. The story made me question the ridiculousness of our society, and the detrimental way that Canada follows America's useless trends without question.
