A Kirkus Best Book of 2019
A 2021 YALSA Best Fiction for Young Adults Book

Nadine Jolie Courtney''s All-American Muslim Girl is a relevant, relatable story of being caught between two worlds, and the struggles and hard-won joys of finding your place.

Allie Abraham has it all going for her-she''s a straight-A student, with good friends and a close-knit family, and she''s dating popular, sweet Wells Henderson. One problem: Wells''s father is Jack Henderson, America''s most famous conservative shock jock, and Allie hasn''t told Wells that her family is Muslim. It''s not like Allie''s religion is a secret. It''s just that her parents don''t practice, and raised her to keep it to herself.

But as Allie witnesses Islamophobia in her small town and across the nation, she decides to embrace her faith-study, practice it, and even face misunderstanding for it. Who is Allie, if she sheds the façade of the "perfect" all-American girl?

Nadine Jolie Courtney is the author of the YA novel Romancing the Throne. A graduate of Barnard College, her articles have appeared in Town & Country, Robb Report, and Angeleno. She lives in Santa Monica, California.
