Fifth-grader Aliya already
struggles with trying to fit in, feeling confident enough to talk to the cute
boy in class, or being brave enough to stand up to mean kids—the fact that
she’s Muslim is just another part of her life.
Should she fast for
Ramadan? Should she wear the hijab? She’s old enough for both, but does she
really want to call attention to herself?
Aliya begins writing letters to Allah, exploring her dreams
and fears, and hoping that with hard work and faith, something beautiful will
grow in the garden of her imaan — the small quiet place inside where belief
unfolds, one petal at a time.
I'm so excited to roll out the blog tour for this awesome new book! Follow along with us this week!
