Description


A witty and engaging story about being young and Muslim.

Amal Abdel-Hakim is, a seventeen year-old Australian-Palestinian-Muslim trying to come to grips with her various identities. It's hard enough being cool as a teenager when being one issue behind the latest Cosmo is enough to disqualify you from the in-group. Try wearing a veil and talking intimately about personal issues and you know you're in for a tough time at school in Australia.

Luckily her friends support her, although they've got troubles of their own. Simone, blonde, gorgeous and overweight has serious image issues, and Leila's really intelligent but her parents are more interested in her getting a marriage certificate than her high school certificate Maybe Amal's problems are not as bad as she thinks
