"Ameena feels invisible. It's been that way since she started at her new school. But now there is another new girl in class. Ameena sees her brownness, her hijab, even though the other kids do not. Ameena wants to be her friend, but she can't seem to find the right words or do the right things. Until one day, they find them together: "Assalamu Alaikum, Sister. Welcome.""--Provided by publisher.
