Huda and her family just moved to Dearborn, Michigan, a small town with a big Muslim population. In her old town, Huda knew exactly who she was: She was the hijabi girl. But in Dearborn, everyone is the hijabi girl.
Huda is lost in a sea of hijabis, and she can’t rely on her hijab to define her anymore. She has to define herself. So she tries on a bunch of cliques, but she isn’t a hijabi fashionista or a hijabi athlete or a hijabi gamer. She’s not the one who knows everything about her religion or the one all the guys like. She’s miscellaneous, which makes her feel like no one at all. Until she realizes that it’ll take finding out who she isn’t to figure out who she is.
So funny, So insightful, So wonderful.
This book is laugh-out-loud funny as we watch a young teen try to find herself.
Amazingly captures the struggle for identity, I think, we have all felt before.
While not growing up Muslim, nor in Michigan, I still found myself identifying with the author and her struggle for self-identity as a teen. We’ve all been there. I am so glad she let us come along on her journey.
