Summary

A seventeen-year-old Pakistani Muslim girl living in Texas brings calamity on her family when she stands up against the racist school bully.


A timely and honest coming-of-age story that explores the complicated relationship between identity, culture, family, and love.
Seventeen-year-old Pakistani immigrant, Zara Hossain, has been leading a fairly typical life in Texas since her family moved there for her father's work. While dealing with the Islamophobia that she faces at school, Zara has to lay low, trying not to stir up any trouble and jeopardise their family's dependent visa status while they await their green card approval.
But one day her tormentor, star football player Tyler Benson, takes things too far, leaving a threatening note in her locker, and gets suspended. As an act of revenge against her for speaking out, Tyler and his friends vandalise Zara's house with racist graffiti, leading to a violent crime that puts Zara's entire future at risk.
Now she must pay the ultimate price and choose between fighting to stay in the only place she's ever called home or losing the life she loves and everyone in it.

NOTE : Contains a few US spellings (color, neighborhood)
