Publisher's Summary

A Pakistani-American Muslim girl struggles to stay true to her family's vibrant culture while simultaneously blending in at school after tragedy strikes her community in this sweet and moving middle-grade novel from the award-winning author of It's Ramadan, Curious George and Golden Domes and Silver Lanterns.
Amina has never been comfortable in the spotlight. She is happy just hanging out with her best friend, Soojin. Except now that she's in middle school everything feels different. Soojin is suddenly hanging out with Emily, one of the "cool" girls in the class, and even talking about changing her name to something more "American." Does Amina need to start changing too? Or hiding who she is to fit in?
While Amina grapples with these questions, she is devastated when her local mosque is vandalized. Amina's Voice brings to life the joys and challenges of a young Pakistani American and highlights the many ways in which one girl's voice can help bring a diverse community together to love and support each other.

adorable middle grade story, need 1000x more

This book was a really cute middle grade book exploring an American preteen of Pakistani descent.

Im Afro-Cuban so thats a completely different narrative for me, and I felt like Amina was a friend teaching me about her culture and religion.

She struggled to juggle being American, Asian, Muslim, a lot of identity not addressed in most mg or ya books. Her best friend was of Korean descent and addressed why how sometimes they have two names.

Even though it addressed a lot of culture, it isn't actually about her struggling with it which I loved. Its nice to see a narrative where someone isn't rejecting their culture just because no one outside of family isn't the same culture.

Shout out to having a name no one can pronounce. This is an own voices book and it really shows because its done with a lot of knowledge and respect. I wish I knew more books like this, it was so cute :-)
