Summary
Lebanese-Australian Jamilah, known in school as Jamie, hides her heritage from her classmates and tries to pass by dyeing her hair blonde and wearing blue-tinted contact lenses, until her conflicted feelings become too much for her to bear
Summary
Have you ever hidden something about yourself because of what people might think? Sixteen-year-old Jamilah does it every day. She goes by "Jamie," wears blue-tinted contacts, and bleaches her hair so that no one at her Australian high school will guess her Lebanese heritage, or that she is Muslim. Why? Mostly because the popular students are hateful to anyone they see as different, and they make crazy assumptions -- as if all Muslims "fly planes into buildings as a hobby." But living a double life is stressful, and "Jamie" isn't sure how much longer she can keep it up. -- Description by Ellen Foreman
