Welcome to a very rare Waiting on Wednesday! Haha, just love WWW Wednesdays so much, but it was high time for a new WoW!
Today I am eagerly waiting for Huda Fahmy’s newest book: Huda F Are You? which releases on November 23rd and I hope that Amazon has it in stock then and for a decent price (because really, I am getting frustrated with Amazon…). I absolutely loved her previous books and so I was hyped to see a new graphic novel appear. This one is about identity and who you are. About Huda who is suddenly not the only girl wearing a hijabi and finds herself lost. I can’t wait to follow Huda on her journey and see her try to find herself/figure things out.
From the creator of Yes, I’m Hot In This, this cheeky, hilarious, and honest graphic novel asks the question everyone has to figure out for themselves: Who are you?
Huda and her family just moved to Dearborn, Michigan, a small town with a big Muslim population. In her old town, Huda knew exactly who she was: She was the hijabi girl. But in Dearborn, everyone is the hijabi girl.
Huda is lost in a sea of hijabis, and she can’t rely on her hijab to define her anymore. She has to define herself. So she tries on a bunch of cliques, but she isn’t a hijabi fashionista or a hijabi athlete or a hijabi gamer. She’s not the one who knows everything about her religion or the one all the guys like. She’s miscellaneous, which makes her feel like no one at all. Until she realizes that it’ll take finding out who she isn’t to figure out who she is.
