Synopsis

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

School is tough enough without throwing a hijab into the mix... Amal is a 16-year-old Melbourne teen with all the usual obsessions about boys, chocolate and Cosmo magazine. She's also a Muslim, struggling to honour the Islamic faith in a society that doesn't understand it. The story of her decision to shawl up and its attendant anxieties (like how much eyeliner to wear) is funny, surprising and touching by turns.
