School is tough enough without throwing a hijab into
the mix...
Amal is a 16-year-old Melbourne teen with all the usual obsessions
about boys, chocolate and Cosmo magazine.

She's also a Muslim, struggling to honour the Islamic faith in
a society that doesn't understand it.

The story of her decision to "shawl up" and its attendant anxieties
(like how much eyeliner to wear) is funny, surprising and touching
by turns.

"...a bright, articulate heroine true to herself and her
faith. Abdel-Fattah's fine first novel offers a world of insight..."
