Descripción

"Amina's anxieties are entirely relatable, but it's her sweet-hearted nature that makes her such a winning protagonist." -Entertainment Weekly

A Pakistani-American Muslim girl struggles to stay true to her family's vibrant culture while simultaneously blending in at school after tragedy strikes her community in this sweet and moving middle grade novel from the award-winning author of It's Ramadan, Curious George and Golden Domes and Silver Lanterns.

Amina has never been comfortable in the spotlight. She is happy just hanging out with her best friend, Soojin. Except now that she's in middle school everything feels different. Soojin is suddenly hanging out with Emily, one of the "cool" girls in the class, and even talking about changing her name to something more "American." Does Amina need to start changing too? Or hiding who she is to fit in?

While Amina grapples with these questions, she is devastated when her local mosque is vandalized. Amina's Voice brings to life the joys and challenges of a young Pakistani American and highlights the many ways in which one girl's voice can help bring a diverse community together to love and support each other.

    Really inspirational! I love Amina's story and the relationships among friends, family and community.

    Oh boy! Middle school is tough. I mean you remember it as being tough but with some distance you convince yourself that you were silly to take it all so seriously. Amina's dilemmas brought back all my middle school angst with friend groups changing and feeling so self-conscious all the time. Add-on that Amina is a Muslim daughter of first generation immigrants from Pakistan and you begin to understand the difficulties this girl of 12 is facing. Beautiful but I did not find it as relaxing as I had hoped. These are some serious issues told so that middle graders can understand.

    I loved this book dearly And it was page turner. But I feel that it was a very short book and could if been longer especially when the vandalism happened. Great book a little scary. All and all, amazing read.

    This is an amazing middle grade read that I'm sure can change a young reader's perception, self-love, and social awareness.
