When Jude said Americans love labels, that spoke to me because I‘ve experienced some of her feelings when moving to a new place. It‘s definitely intimidating, I hope she can learn to adjust to her environment.

Over the weekend I finished the book while watching middle school basketball. So many people asked me about the story & fascinated with the illustration on the cover. I felt unsettled after finishing this story... I wanted more from her!!!!! #NCHPEDSReads #FEBPEDsReads @NCHPedsReads

Jude is going through a lot of changes right now! The biggest thing going on in her life right now is she is finally able to wear a scarf! I remember in the beginning of the story she felt Fatima was “kilometers ahead of her” since she was the first girl in their class to wear a scar. On a side note, I loved this quote ❤️ #FEBPedsReads #NCHPEDsReads

CodyFordPEDS I know there are people in my life that support me and make me feel like fully baked bread. I think we all need those people to get through the roughest and undefined parts of life! I‘m glad Jude found that in herself and others! @NCHPedsReads #FebPEDSReads 5d

Jude‘s journey was inspiring. She demonstrated so many qualities of a strong female: determination, persistence, courageous, and fear. She tried to be brave like her brother but was always honest to herself about the uncertainty of her new situation. Her emotions were real and she helped readers see that it‘s ok to go out there and take on new challenges, whether by choice or not.

Johernandez I actually really liked this book. It‘s so relatable and shows a different perspective from a culture that I would love to know more about! 9h

It makes me sad how alone Jude feels at the moment. With her cousin Sarah asking “When she will leave” while also missing her family back in Syria, I quite frankly could not imagine the pain. I also think it‘s interesting how Jude‘s mom is very closed off to the idea of Jude‘s aunt being “too American” and making her uncle that way too. I wonder if Jude‘s mom will warm up to the idea throughout the book? @NCHPedsReads

Giovanny_Vargas There is most certainly a struggle with culture throughout the story and the aunt being more “American“ when compared to judes mom #FebPedsReads #NCHPedsReads (edited) 5d
CodyFordPEDS I think this illustrates an intolerance that can pervade sometimes when it comes to immigrants in America. Different people react to differences in different ways. I think this perfectly shows why we need to have compassion when it comes to these situations! @NCHPedsReads #febPEDSReads 5d

Have you finished the book yet? It was such a sweet ending, but I want her to write more so I know how the characters stories continue! This is the hardest part for me with books, how do their lives continue? I like to think her brother was able to visit and her dad was able to meet the new baby. How do you think their stories continued after the book ends? #NCHPedsReads #JanPedsReads

Jude is meeting her uncle and is seeing how different her life is back home vs. her uncle‘s life in America. She describes her cousin Sarah as a “cool American” which I find interesting. Jude is already looking at American culture as “cool” because it is so unlike her normal upbringing. This makes me feel as if Jude is excited to learn about being more like the American culture. I‘ll have to keep reading and see!
