Featured in a New York Times article titled "Teach Your Kids to Resist Hatred Toward Asians"

A young boy wrestles with his Muslim identify until a compassionate teacher helps him to understand more about his heritage. 


After a family move, Bilal and his sister Ayesha attend a new school where they find out that they may be the only Muslim students there. Bilal sees his sister bullied on their first day, so he worries about being teased himself, thinking it might be best if his classmates didn''t know that he is Muslim.

What Bilal learns from the book forms the compelling story of a young boy grappling with his identity.
