Abstract:

"Bilal Abu has a lot to say, but he's scared to open his mouth. And who could blame him? A 16-year-old Iraqi refugee, he has to contend with his immigrant family's never-ending drama and his fanatical older brother's sexual abuse. And then there's life in his sketchy neighborhood in Kansas City, Missouri, where all the non-Muslim kids think he's a terrorist. When Bilal falls in love with the son of his community's religious leader, things get better - and a whole lot worse."

"In this careful study of what it means to be a stranger - in a new nation, in your own religious community, and even in your own family - Sulayman X gives us a courageous character who manages to find his voice just when other people most want him to be silent."--Jacket.
