From School Library Journal
K-Gr 3—Lailah recently moved from Abu Dhabi to Peachtree City, GA, and while she misses her friends back in the Middle East, she is very excited to be old enough to fast during Ramadan. However, being new is one thing, but being different is another. What if her class doesn't know what Ramadan is? What if she is the only one fasting? Lailah falters when it is time to give Mrs. Penworth a note asking that she be excused from lunch, and she has to endure the tempting smells of food and kind offers of her classmates to share lunch. After escaping to the foodless library, the school librarian encourages Lailah to write down her feelings and share them with her teacher. After all, who knows what could come of sharing her culture? The large, often full-page watercolor illustrations provide gentle details that add depth to the text. A note and glossary round out the story, giving context from the author's life and information about Islamic culture. Fans of Patricia Polacco will enjoy this heartfelt tale. VERDICT A solid addition for libraries in need of modern Ramadan stories.—Brittany Staszak, St. Charles Public Library, IL
“A lovely classroom-friendly introduction to the Muslim month of fasting!”

Children may find it difficult to talk about what makes them different. Perhaps that difference is having a chronic health condition, having a family member with a developmental disability, or belonging to a non-traditional family. They may feel just like Lailah and be afraid that nobody will understand. I would recommend this book to parents, family members, educators, and caregivers wanting to give a little bit of encouragement to the child in their life that feels different and out of place.
