A story about finding your voice and fitting in. 

12-year-old Nimra Sharif has spent her whole life in Islamic school,
but is about to embark on middlel school and is feeling nervous.



Nimra is desperate to fit in but finds the popular kids avoid
her because of her hijab, and her best-friend Jenna isn’t the
same at school.


So when she is invited to join the school’s popular band,
Nimra is unsure what to do.


She has been taught that music isn’t allowed in Islam, but
it is an opportunity to make new friends and win back the graces
of her best-friend Jenna.


What will Nimra do?





A junior Jenny Han

Perfect for fans of Netflix's Julie and the Phantoms 


Brilliantly-written, full of music, with a message of 'fitting
in' at the heart of it

fell in love." - Wendy Wan-Long Shang, author of Not
