At Fatima’s new high school, she’s the only one wearing a hijab. It isn’t until she begins an unlikely friendship with Jorah, a young man with a troubled reputation, that she starts to feel less like an outsider. How can she balance this new relationship with her family’s faith? What is it like to be 16 years-old, a girl, a Muslim, and a refugee all at the same time? Jabber engages teens, teachers, and parents in meaningful discussions on the judgments and assumptions we make based on each other’s perceived differences.

Links to self-esteem, families, prejudice, online safety, Muslim culture, celebrating differences
