Meet Farah Hajjar! Her last name means "Rocks" in Arabic, and so she's known to her friends as Farah Rocks. With a rock-hard will, Farah takes on tough parts of being a kid, including bullying, academic pressure, caring for a sibling with special needs, and friendship troubles. Everyone will identify with her hard work, sense of wonder, and search for confidence and all the fun and mistake-making along the way.
For ages 8-12. New series by debut, and #ownvoices author.
