Product description

Weepy, brave and oh-so-gorgeous! Teen life/love in the shadow of 9/11. Jihad. Terrorism. The Twin Towers burning. Who wants to talk about that all the time? Not Shirin. Trouble is, it’s 2002 and she’s Muslim. The spectre of 9/11 seems to be on everybody’s mind. Shirin is sick of it all. The stares. The stereotyping. The degrading comments about her race, religion and hijab. It’s always the same, even though she’s just moved to yet another high school. But then she meets Ocean James. He’s the first person in forever who really seems to want to get to know her. It’s lovely – and scary. Shirin’s had her guard up for sooo long. Will she ever dare to let it down?

  • A heart-rending tale of love, prejudice and self-discovery
  • By the New York Times bestselling author of Shatter Me
  • Set in the politically turbulent time immediately after 9/11
  • Perfect for fans of Nicola Yoon and The Hate U Give

“This is a gorgeous book. It’s tender and fierce, beautiful even as it depicts some ugly truths. The prose is passionate and honest, unsentimental and big-hearted. The very best books move you to reconsider the world around you and this is one of those. I truly loved it.” Nicola Yoon

*Please note this book contains language more suitable for older readers.
