Poppy lives with her father, who has become incredibly possessive and anxious of Poppy since Lola has left, making her defer college for a year.

THE GOOD ARABS grounds the reader in place, language, and the body. Peeling and rinsing radishes. Dancing as a pre-teen to Nancy Ajram. Being drenched in stares on the city bus.
