Read in February, 2012

A very promising first novel, this is a great young adult read, and a fresh, excellent look at the cultural clash experienced by many migrant teens - in this case, fifteen-year old Sabiha, whose mother has recently decided to throw herself into regaining her Bosnian and Muslim heritage. Life is further complicated for Sabiha by her mother's mental illness, and by having to change schools. However, Sabiha's strength makes the book ultimately optimistic.
