Narrator Nazia Chaudhry brings upbeat energy to this story about a Pakistani-American girl's conflicted feelings about missing school during Eid. While she is excited about the festivities at the masjid, wearing her most beautiful shalwar kameez, and having her hands decorated with mehndi, Amira is sad to be missing picture day at school. Happily, she comes up with a solution that reinforces her positive Muslim identity. Chaudhry's steady narration is pleasantly interspersed with music, immersing listeners in the Central Asian culture while providing pauses to reflect on Amira's thoughts and emotions. An author's note explains more about Eid, and Chaudhry clearly pronounces the Urdu words, which are defined in the glossary at the end of the audiobook.
