Description:
It's been several months since the US officially declared war on Iraq, and the political world has evolved. Shadi, who wears hijab - a visible allegiance to Islam - keeps her head down. Hate crimes are spiking. Undercover FBI agents are infiltrating mosques and interrogating members of the congregation, and the local Muslim community is beginning to fracture. Shadi hears the fights after services - the arguments between families about what it means to be Muslim, about what they should be doing and saying as a community but she does not engage. She's too busy drowning in her own troubles to find the time to deal with bigots. Shadi is named for joy, but she's haunted by sorrow. Her brother is dead, her father is dying, her mother is falling apart, and her best friend has mysteriously dropped out of her life. And then, of course, there's the small matter of her heart - it's broken.
Adolescent.
