Narrator Priya Ayyar perfectly crafts the voice of high school student Shirin. As Shirin starts over once again at a new high school, she faces prejudice from her classmates and even her teachers because she is Muslim. When she falls for one of her classmates, Ocean, who is the school's star basketball player, the teasing and bullying intensify. Listeners will feel they have a window onto the love Shirin and Ocean are developing for each other through details such as their instant messaging conversations. Romance and realistic fiction fans alike will be captivated by these authentic characters who tell a story of the struggle many Muslim teens face in the U.S. in the aftermath of 9/11.
