Zara's Rules for Record-Breaking Fun

Zara's Rules for Record-Breaking Fun

Author: Hena Khan Illustrator: Wastana Haikal Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 07/07/2022

From the beloved author of Amina's Voice comes the first book in a humor-filled middle grade series starring a young Muslim girl with an endless list of hobbies who searches for ways to maximize fun for her family and neighborhood friends. Meet Zara Saleem, the queen of the neighborhood. Zara's in charge of it all: she organizes the games, picks the teams, and makes sure everyone has a good time...and they always do. When a new family moves in across the street, suddenly Zara' s reign is threatened by Naomi, who has big ideas of her own about how the neighborhood kids can have fun. To get everyone to notice her again, Zara decides she's going to break a Guinness World Record-if her little brother Zayd doesn't mess things up. But when she finds herself increasingly alone in her record-breaking quest, Zara starts to wonder if sharing the crown and making a new friend might end up being the best rule of all.

Are you a hero or a villain? Pick your path in this action-packed, illustrated origin story where the reader - yes, that means YOU! - gets the power of flight and must decide, choice by choice, whether to use their abilities for good or evil. You thought you were in for an ordinary summer at science camp - that is, until you sneak into an off-limits area of the Center for Avian Science, get your hand scratched by a weird bird, and suddenly gain the power of flight! Now it's up to you to decide how to use the power: Will you fly out at night to save the day? Will you team up with the villainous Dr. Zeus, who bred the mutant bird and wants to take over the world with its powers? Or will you make the wrong choice and meet an ill-fated end? Follow the choices, pick your path, and fly toward your fate. This looks like a job for Super You!

Author: Hena Khan Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 15/10/2020

From the critically acclaimed author of Amina's Voice comes a new story inspired by Louisa May Alcott's beloved classic, Little Women, featuring four sisters from a modern American Muslim family living in Georgia. When Jameela Mirza is picked to be feature editor of her middle school newspaper, she's one step closer to being an award-winning journalist like her late grandfather. The problem is her editor-in-chief keeps shooting down her article ideas. Jameela's assigned to write about the new boy in school, who has a cool British accent but doesn't share much, and wonders how she'll make his story gripping enough to enter into a national media contest. Jameela, along with her three sisters, is devastated when their father needs to take a job overseas, away from their cozy Georgia home for six months. Missing him makes Jameela determined to write an epic article-one to make her dad extra proud. But when her younger sister gets seriously ill, Jameela's world turns upside down. And as her hunger for fame looks like it might cost her a blossoming friendship, Jameela questions what matters most, and whether she's cut out to be a journalist at all...
