Not the Girls You're Looking for

Aminah Mae Safi

In Safi’s debut, Lulu Saad a Muslim-American teen is ready to tackle her junior year and conquer the world with her three best friends by her side. She considers herself both American and Arab, but to many of her classmates, she’s a Muslim terrorist. But Lulu defies normal stereotypes because although she celebrates Ramadan, she also drinks, smokes, and loves to hook up with boys. After she causes a scene at an out of control party during Ramadan, Lulu's reputation seems to be ruined forever. If she can't find her way out of this mess, she’ll have to do more than repair friendships and family alliances. Lulu will have to put back the pieces of her life, take a good look at herself, and come to terms with who she really is.
