Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Nankani’s sweet voice perfectly matches Amina…While clearly differentiating each character, Nankani helps listeners feel Amina’s longing to help others see beyond the stereotypes of her family and their country.” AudioFile
“Khan excellently weaves together complex issues of feeling torn between two parts of one’s identity, illness in the family, helping others, and finding out that growing up does not have to mean growing apart. Highly recommended for all collections.” Booklist (starred review)
“A beautiful story for middle graders discovering who they are. A wonderful addition to all collections.” School Library Journal
“Amina sorts through mild middle school turbulence and finds satisfying ways to express and share her true self.” Kirkus Reviews
