TEN THINGS I HATE ABOUT ME
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary Young Adult
Beautifully written with well-developed characters, this novel raises very relevant questions about racism and identity that teens of any culture or religion will relate too.
At school she's Jamie, blonde and blue-eyed, an Australian with no ethnic or religious identity. At home she's Jamilah, who plays in an Arabic band and has a ridiculously strict father. She might not have any close friends, but that's preferable to the harassment other Lebanese Muslims at her school face. When everything begins to change in unexpected ways, Jamie must figure out who she is -- and how to be happy with that person. (ORCHARD, Jan., 304 pp.,$16.99, ISBN: 9780545050555, HC, 12 and Up)
