Reviews

*Khan skillfully weaves in cultural references and Urdu phrases alongside thoughtful questions about the arts, mental health, social media, parent-child relationships, and the pressures adolescent girls face about their appearances.

A nuanced and quietly powerful story. --Kikrus, STARRED REVIEW "12/1/23"
"this book is written with an authentic middle school voice and blends culture, realistic worries, and mental health in a way upper elementary school and young middle school readers will appreciate."--School Library Journal "1/1/24"
"A sensitive look at the effect of anxiety and the pressures of today (including social media) on young people's mental health."--Horn Book "Janaury/February 2024"
"Through candid first-person narration, Khan (Zara's Rules for Living Your Best Life) examines adolescent anxiety and its various triggers and depicts adaptive coping mechanisms, including making the most of mentorship and support from one's community. "--Publishers Weekly "1/22/24"
