I just finished My Isl@m by Amir Ahmad Nasr. It is such a charming and informative book on one young man's struggle to study and choose for himself the part of Islam that is thoughtful and moral. Also through his eyes and experiences you get to know other brave young people from the Middle East who are making a difference in their countries through the electronic media. They were there online in blogs, twitter, e-mail, and in person during the Arab Spring.
