Summary
"High school has ended, and Shabnam Qureshi is facing a summer of loneliness and boredom. She's felt alienated from her gutsy best friend, Farah, ever since Farah started wearing the Muslim head scarf--without even bothering to discuss it with Shabnam first. But no one else comes close to understanding her, especially not her parents. All Shabnam wants to do is get through the summer. Get to Penn. Begin anew. Not look back. That is, until she meets Jamie...In her quest to figure out who she really is and what she really wants, Shabnam looks for help in an unexpected place--her family." provided by publisher
Summary
When Shabnab's best friend starts wearing a Muslim headscarf, she feels alienated until taking a summer job that leads to falling in love with a friend in ways that remind her of the rose and nightingale of classic Urdu poetry
