Middle Grade


Amina's Voice (2017) by Hena Khan. Amina is struggling with many of the same issues as all middle schoolers - feeling felt behind by her best friend, stage fright, and protective parents. But on top of all of that, her conservative uncle is coming to visit from Pakistan, and her father is nervous about how he might interpret their "American" ways. This is an engaging and highly relatable story with important lessons about tolerance and understanding, with great insights into a Muslim-American family.

Happy Reading!
