Americanized by Sara Saedi

Rating: ⭐⭐⭐

There are some interesting facts and funny stories in this nonfiction book but overall I found the stories disjointed and the humor undermined the difficult process of becoming a citizen when you are an illegal immigrant.

Saedi is a talented humor writer and I felt like this might have been two books pushed into one. There all these great and funny anecdotes about her family and her parents but there is also the harsh reality of being an immigrant and not fitting in.

Overall, it was a quick, fun read.
