Year Eleven at an exclusive prep school in the suburbs of Melbourne, Australia, would be tough enough, but it is further complicated for Amal when she decides to wear the hijab, the Muslim head scarf, full-time as a badge of her faith--without losing her identity or sense of style.

Great submitted by zidrissu on August 20, 2013, 4:31pm This is a really nice book and it helps you understand at least one perspective on how a Muslim girl feels at times. I like that Amal, the main character, is very vivacious and quite opinionated.

Good submitted by zmclaugh on July 16, 2019, 9:43pm A little over-the-top at times, but this is a great book about being Muslim in Australia.
