Publisher's Summary

American-born 17-year-old Maya Aziz is torn between worlds. There's the proper one her parents expect for their good Indian daughter: attending a college close to their suburban Chicago home and being paired off with an older Muslim boy who's "suitable" to her mother. And then there is the world of her dreams: going to film school and living in New York City - and maybe, just maybe, pursuing a boy she's known from afar her entire life who's suddenly falling into her orbit at school. 

But unbeknownst to Maya, there is a danger looming beyond her control. When a terrorist attack occurs in another Midwestern city, the prime suspect happens to share her last name. In an instant, Maya's community, consumed by fear and hatred, becomes unrecognizable, and her life changes forever.

Okay

I liked this book and the main character but I wish the author had done mor with the character's love of making documentaries. Films can express our inner feelings and I would've loved to see that either with being harassed at school or as a way to communicate with her parents.

Characters

Love meeting a Muslim character for a change! I e met most of these characters in my classroom but never in a novel. Brilliant!
