When Amina’s best friend, Soojin, starts hanging out with one of the “cool” girls at school and talking about changing her name to something more “American,” Amina wonders if she needs to start changing too, or hiding who she is to fit in. As she struggles to stay true to her Pakistani-American family’s vibrant culture, tragedy strikes her community, and Amina learns what it means to find her own voice.
