Thirteen year old Zeyneb is like any other teenage girl, managing school work, family and the demands of her social life. But as a Muslim girl growing up in Britain, things are a bit more complicated, especially when she finds herself drawn to a non-Muslim boy. Can she be true to both her feelings and her culture?
A very timely and topical story about a Muslim girl struggling to balance both cultures while staying true to her family and faith. An enlightening and uplifting story for young teens.
