"This book is rich with realistic, complex details about Islam, agency, urban life, and friendship. Amina's story is at once culturally specific, unique and universal, so that readers from all walks of like will find moments of connection. Politically relevant, this timely story offers many opportunities for classroom discussion." --Booklist
