Faith turns to shame, confidence to doubt, and conviction to rebellion.
Inaya was only nine years old when her mother converted to Islam and moved the family to Saudi Arabia. Excited about the move and their new faith, Inaya learned Arabic, memorized Qur’an, and inspired Muslim girls to wear hijab and love their religion.
Now, at sixteen years old, Inaya returns to America with her family, and when a Muslim weekend school learns of Inaya, she is immediately asked to teach Qur’an. And again, she becomes an inspiration to other Muslims, this time to youth and adults alike.
But as a Muslim girl in public school, Inaya isn’t so sure of herself. Ashamed of her Muslim appearance, Inaya decides to remove her hijab and hide her religion…and she hopes to get the attention of a boy she likes.
But she has no idea how to hide this double life from her mother and from everyone who admires her strong faith.
