It's hard enough being a kid without being teased for a funny sounding name or wearing a hijab.
It's even harder when you're constantly fighting your sibling—and Zara and Zeeshan really can't stand each other. During a family trip to Florida, when the bickering, shoving, and insults reach new heights of chaos, their parents sentence them to the worst possible fate— each other’s company! But when the twins find an ailing turtle, it presents a rare opportunity for teamwork—if the two can put their differences aside at last.
Relatable, funny, and heart-wrenchingly honest, with illustrations by Shazleen Khan, Saving Sunshine by Saadia Faruqi is the poignant story of Muslim American siblings learning how to build each other up in a world that is too often unkind.
