PostSubject: Does My Head Look Big In This? BY: Randa Abdel-Fattah   Wed Jul 28, 2010 6:28 pm

This girl: Amal makes a decision to wear a hijab full-time even in her private high school. Now she must endure high
school's hard time with a hijab on her head. I know it sounds boring but its sooooo funny!!

There is two (three) covers I personly like the poka-dot ones better!

or

and

Here is a quote from the book that I really thought was funny:
"I'm fast asleep, dreaming of my first day of school, when my alarm goes berserk. I hit the snooze button and slip into that deepest of sleeps, where you know that nothing in the entire universe could offer the slightest temptation for you to get out of bed. Then four minutes pass and that sadistic shrilling device sounds off again. If that's not bad enough, my mom walks into my room and jumps on me, kissing my face and head.
"Come on, ya Amal! First day back to school!"
"Five more minutes," I groan.
"Ya Amal! Come on! Yallah!" In the act of severe child abuse,my bed quilt is mercilessly pulled off my body."

I laughed for like five minutes! Although I do find almost everything funny, but this is truly funny!

I loved this book. I thought it was very good and it's about a topic that may be on many peoples minds, but isn't discussed in books that often. It's been forever since I've read it though.
Amal had an amazing voice, and I think that Randa Abdel-Fattah captured her life really well.

Yippie! I though I was the only who read/reading this book, because it did not seem like a super well known book!
