Reviews
This fun series of chapter books by award-winning writer Susan Muaddi Darraj is for readers aged 8-12. The books follows Farah Hajjar, known to her friends as "Farah Rocks", for the literal translation of her last name. Farah is a smart, courageous Palestinian-American girl who faces common issues like bullies, fights with her best friend, and school anxiety, while also honouring her Palestinian identity - there's even a hummus recipe at the end. This is a four-book series, and readers can find Farah in Farah Rocks Fifth Grade (2020), Farah Rocks Summer Break (2020), Farah Rocks New Beginnings (2021), and one more forthcoming Farah book from Capstone Publishing.--M.

Farah faces all of life's challenges: bullies, school drama, and even problems with her best friend.--Hannah Moushabeck "We Need Diverse Books, "12 Children's and YA Books by Palestinian Authors""
