Teenage twins Zara and Zeeshan constantly bicker, belittling each other’s interests and each other. But on a family vacation to Florida, they discover that although one is an animal rights activist and the other an amateur astronomer, they share the same fears and feelings of isolation. While saving the life of a loggerhead turtle, the siblings come to realize that their twin is one person who will always have their backs. As always, beloved author Saadia Faruqi captures the emotions of growing up Muslim and the exclusion many children face in this beautifully illustrated graphic novel.
