Does My Head Look Big in This? Summary

Does My Head Look Big in This? by Randa Abdel-Fattah

Text in Arabic. When sixteen-year-old Amal decides to wear the hijab fulltime, her entire world changes, all because of a piece of cloth... Everyone has a reaction. Her parents, her teachers, her friends, people on the street. But she stands by her decision to embrace her faith and all that it is, even if it does make her a little different from everyone else. Can she handle the taunts of towel head, the prejudice of her classmates, and still attract the cutest boy in school? Brilliantly funny and poignant, Randa Abdel-Fattahs debut novel will strike a chord in all teenage readers, no matter what their beliefs.
