A Washington Post Best Childrens Book of 2017

"For inspiring empathy in young readers, you cant get better than this book." --R. J. Palacio, author of #1 New York Timesbestseller Wonder

"Aminas anxieties are entirely relatable, but its her sweet-hearted nature that makes her such a winning protagonist." --Entertainment Weekly

A Pakistani-American Muslim girl struggles to stay true to her familys vibrant culture while simultaneously blending in at school after tragedy strikes her community in this "compassionate, timely novel" (Booklist, starred review) from the award-winning author of Its 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 shes 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.

Aminas Voice brings to life the joys and challenges of a young Pakistani-American and highlights the many ways in which one girls voice can help bring a diverse community together to love and support each other.
