Muslim Teens In: Pitfalls and Pranksby Maryam Mahmoodian
Imagine...that you are an average fifteen-year old boy in an American public high school. You study hard, play soccer, and look forward to getting your driver's license next year along with your first job. One typical day, a popular cheerleader approaches you at school and wants to go on a date. Everyone's dream, right? Except suddenly you realize that you're not an average boy--you're a Muslim and you're not allowed to date. But all around you--in high school, in books, on television--everyone is dating. So who do you turn to as an example?
At the same time, Nur becomes convinced that her college-aged brother is becoming a fundamentalist Muslim based on some of the people he is hanging out with at the university. She gets a lesson in jumping to conclusions and stereotyping in the same way that she so adamantly speaks out against. These are just two of the many typical situations that the teenagers in this book face.
