Does My Head Look Big in This?

Author(s): Randa Abdel-Fattah

Young Adult

A witty and engaging story about being young and Muslim.

Amal Abdel-Hakim is, a seventeen year-old Australian-Palestinian-Muslim trying to come to grips with her various identities. It's hard enough being cool as a teenager when being one issue behind the latest Cosmo is enough to disqualify you from the in-group. Try wearing a veil and talking intimately about personal issues and you know you're in for a tough time at school in Australia.

Luckily her friends support her, although they've got troubles of their own. Simone, blonde, gorgeous and overweight - has serious image issues, and Leila's really intelligent but her parents are more interested in her getting a marriage certificate than her high school certificate Maybe Amal's problems are not as bad as she thinks...
