Huda used to be the only person in her class wearing a hijab, but when she moves to Dearborn, Michigan and starts a new high school, that all changes. There are many students wearing a hijab! She is not just the girl wearing the hijab! Who is she? Who does she want to be? What does she actually like? Does anyone want to be her friend? She is finding there to be many challenges in high school from finding friends, to her family’s expectations, to Islamophobia.
Huda is a very likeable character and finds some great people around her and maybe even in her own family to support her. The illustrations in this graphic novel are clean, purposeful, and easy to follow. This is a sweet and humorous coming-of-age story that many people will relate to.
