Praise

Praise for Huda F Are You?

"Fahmy portrays the negotiations of identity—be it social, cultural, or personal—in high school with humor and genuine warmth . . . [a] funny, thoughtful story of negotiating school dynamics, cultural identity, and individual agency." —BCCB

"Fahmy comedically captures Huda’s embarrassing moments, conflicting desires for validation and acceptance, and the sarcasm she uses as a coping mechanism when facing everyday Islamophobia, xenophobia, bigotry, and microaggressions . . . Hilarious, charming, and much needed." —Kirkus

"[An] unconventional fish-out-of-water story . . . [an] entertaining, frequently wry fictionalized memoir." —Publishers Weekly

"In her signature loose, expressive cartooning style, Fahmy deftly balances humor and seriousness . . . The specific context of Huda’s story is sure to resonate with Muslim teens, but the pitch-perfect jokes and search for a way to stand up for herself without standing out too much is something lots of teens can relate to." —Booklist
