About the Author

Huda Fahmy grew up in Dearborn, Michigan, and has loved comics since she was a kid. She attended the University of Michigan where she majored in English. She taught English to middle and high schoolers for eight years before she started writing about her experiences as a visibly Muslim woman in America and was encouraged by her older sister to turn these stories into comics. Huda, her husband Gehad, and their children reside in Houston, Texas.

"One of the rare books where I literally laughed out loud! I loved Huda's story of standing out from the mainstream, and her real, funny, and complex sisterly relationships." --Victoria Jamieson, creator of National Book Award Finalist When Stars Are Scattered

"Touching and laugh out loud funny! Huda F Cares is a relatable ode to sisterhood and what it means to have your family's back while being true to yourself." --Claribel A. Ortega, New York Times bestselling author of the Witchlings Series and Frizzy

"Infused with the perfect balance of warmth and humor, Huda Fahmy's latest is a gem of a story exploring everything from sisterhood to identity. An absolute delight." --Hafsah Faizal, New York Times bestselling author of We Hunt the Flame

"Comedic and poignant, Fahmy's narrative captures universal feelings of fluctuating confidence and self-deprecation, the ups and downs of family dynamics, and the growing awareness of siblings' humanity outside the family unit. The cartoonlike, full-color artwork is dynamic, with simplified features that accentuate facial expressions. Delightfully heartwarming." --Kirkus

"This follow-up to Huda F Are You? is a delightful story, even when addressing difficult issues. Picturing a tiny 'Thoughtful Huda and 'Selfish Huda' on Huda's shoulders as she wrestles with decisions is one way the creator employs humor in both narrative and art without lessening the impact of what the girls face. This strong addition to any collection wraps messages about stepping into new experiences while staying true to yourself within a funny, enjoyable story." --School Library Journal

"Fahmy's signature simplified cartooning style softens some ofthe tougher moments the sisters encounter, while still enabling her quick, sharp humor to stick the landing." --Booklist

"[I]ncredibly charming . . . Fahmy's jokey style mixes beautifully with a story of learning to be both strong and joyful, and that maybe, just maybe, it's not so bad to hang out with your sisters." --Vox
