A Place for Us
by Fatima Farheen Mirza
This story follows Rafiq and Layla, Muslims from India, as they marry, moved to America, and have three children. Amar, the youngest and their only son, struggles with school, the family, the culture, and the religion. How much do the expectations of our culture shape us? How do we help a child who doesn't feel at home with our family? Are men too hard on their sons and mothers too easy? How do you deal with regret when you tried to do everything right?
If you've ever felt you don't belong in your family, your community, or your religion, this book offers lots of food for thought.
