Featured Book of the Week
Golden Girl by Reem Faruqi is a story told in verse about 7th grader, Aafiyah, a Pakastani-American girl. Aafiyah has a bad habit of “borrowing” things without asking permission. However, when her father is arrested and detained for a crime he didn’t commit, can she use that bad habit for good to prove her dad’s innocence?
