Asiya's hijab is like the ocean and the sky, no line between them, saying hello with a loud wave.
It’s Faizah’s first day of school, and her older sister Asiya’s first day of hijab – made of a beautiful blue fabric. But not everyone sees hijab as beautiful. In the face of hurtful, confusing words, will Faizah find new ways to be strong?
This is an uplifting, universal story of new experiences, the unbreakable bond shared by siblings and of being proud of who you are, from Olympic medallist Ibtihaj Muhammad.

Industry Reviews
"Stark, spiky silhouettes suggest the impact of casual unkindness, while strong, simple poetic language evokes Asiya's calm determination to ignore intolerance." * Guardian *
"[A] beautiful and powerful story about the bond shared between siblings and being proud of yourself and your beliefs." * BookTrust *
"The vivid colour and expressive illustration are just as powerful as words in conveying the passionate message of how to be proud of one's culture, individuality, and religion and how to stay strong protected by the armour of family love... [A]n excellent book about identity and self-confidence for young readers who can see themselves in Asiya or know someone like her and essential for Empathy collections." * LoveReading4Kids *
"Beautifully done; a celebration of the sibling bond and a powerful story of resilience." -- Fiona Noble * The Bookseller *
"A universal story of new experiences and the unbreakable bond shared by siblings." * Angels & Urchins *
