Drawing a Veil

Publisher: A&C Black

When her best friend suddenly turns up at school wearing a black headscarf, Ellie isn’t sure what to think. Apparently Amina has even chosen to wear it – to show support for her Muslim sisters and to denote modesty. Ellie is unhappy - Amina didn’t even warn her best friend that she was going to start wearing a hijab and to make matters worse, it is starting to attract the attention of the school bullies. Ellie’s loyalty starts to feel the strain.

This is a highly readable and thought-provoking story about the realities and challenges of friendship and religion. From A&C Black’s Wired series.
