What a wonderful story about rites of passage, the bonds of sisters, overcoming classmate cruelty and taunts, and the importance of faith to a young girl. Little sisters look up to older sisters usually and for Faizah watching her sister buy her first hijab and wear it to school on the first day is a special moment. Aly's illustrations are beautiful as they bring to life the ocean/sky blue color that Asiya selects for her hijab. The anonymous way in which the bullies are portrayed is powerful as well.

How heartbreaking to put down this book with a smile on my face this morning and then pick up my phone and learn about the terrorist attacks on New Zeeland mosques. All the more reason to have books like this in our world.
