The Proudest Blue

With her new backpack and light-up shoes, Faizah knows the first day of school is going to be special. It's the start of a new year and, best of all, it's her older sister Asiya's first day of hijab--a hijab of beautiful blue fabric, like the ocean waving to the sky. But not everyone sees hijab as beautiful, and in the face of hurtful, confusing words, Faizah will find new ways to be strong. This book was written by Olympic medalist Ibtihaj Muhammad and is an uplifting, universal story of new experiences, the unbreakable bond between siblings, and of being proud of who you are.
