An exciting Islamic story about self-acceptance and standing up to bullying.

Through a fantastical journey of adventure and self-discovery, Nusaiba gains the confidence necessary to embrace her identity and stand up for herself.

Book Review by Husna
"This is a gem of a story that packs so much between it's colorful covers. It teaches kids about self-acceptance, confidence, standing up to bullies, harnessing our imagination, and more. My daughter loves the different hijabs Nusaiba tries on as she imagines herself in different roles, I love that Nusaiba's mom is portrayed as a strong, independent, professional woman - and we both love the lessons about confronting bullies with confidence. Great story! "
