Descripción

When Omair's family(refugees from Syria) moved to America, they knew they'd face a certain level of prejudice. They did not, however, expect to be placed in a small town almost full to the brim of people with hatred for all Muslims and other people from the Middle East because of past terrorist attacks and a score to settle. Then, boy meets girl.

Everyone, let's say hello to our new student, Omair Ashraf. He just moved here from Syria, the teacher finally cut in, turning and motioning toward the boy, who squirmed in his seat as every head turned in his direction.
