Publisher's Summary

Zomorod (Cindy) Yousefzadeh is the new kid on the block...for the fourth time. California's Newport Beach is her family's latest perch, and she's determined to shuck her brainy loner persona and start afresh with a new Brady Bunch name - Cindy. It's the late 1970s, and fitting in becomes more difficult as Iran makes US headlines with protests, revolution, and finally the taking of American hostages. Even mood rings and puka shell necklaces can't distract Cindy from the anti-Iran sentiments that creep way too close to home.
A poignant yet lighthearted middle grade debut from the author of the best-selling Funny in Farsi.

Fantastic book for all ages!

I listened to this audiobook and really enjoyed it! I love to learn about other cultures especially when there is great humor involved. My daughters also listened and couldn't turn it off! The themes of kindness, and perseverance really spoke to them. I'd recommend this book to everyone!

It Ain't So Awful, Falafel

It is a narrative of a sweet Iranian-American girl living in California the moment Iran's history changed and it started to be seing as an enemy of the US. It teaches a lot about being human before being from a country or following a religion. Highly recommended.
