Description
A Pakistani-American Muslim girl struggles to stay true to her family's vibrant culture while simultaneously blending in at school after tragedy strikes her community. Amina Khoker has always been a shy kid, but she's never been interested in being popular. She is happy just hanging out with her best friend Soojin Park. Except now that middle school has begun, everything seems to be changing. Soojin is thinking about changing her name to an American one, and it makes Amina feel like the odd one out. It doesn't help that Soojin has recently started hanging out with Emily, one of the "cool" girls from their class. Does this mean Soojin is moving on? Will Amina have to become more American too? What does it mean to be American? While Amina struggles to answer these questions, her community is shocked when their local mosque is vandalized.
