Summary
Welcome to my world. I'm Amal Abdel-Hakim, a sixteen-year-old Australian-Palestinian-Muslim still getting to grips with my various identity hyphens. It's hard enough to be cool as a teenager when being one issue behind the lastest Cosmo disqualifies you from the in-group. Try wearing a veil on your head and getting in the 'bum's up' position at lunchtime and you know you're in for a tough time. Luckily my friends support me, although they've got a few troubles of their own. Simone, blonde and gorgeous, has got serious image issues, and Leila's really intelligent but her parents are more interested in her getting a marriage certificate than her high school certificate. And I thought I had problems..
Summary
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
