Head Over Heart by Colette Victor
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book describes the challenges of a 13 years old British girl named Zeyneb, as she tries to balance her Muslim beliefs with the feelings she has for a Alex, a cute but non-muslim boy in her class. Zeyneb struggles to come to terms with her faith and her families expectations. To complicate matters, Zeyneb must decide if she wants to wear a traditional hijab, or head scarf. I enjoyed this young adult book and I would recommend it for teens, it is a fun new take on the trials of female adolescence and coming of age struggles, with a Turkish twist.
