Amina’s Voice is a book about a girl named Amina who doesn’t like speaking in front of an audience. When Amina goes into middle school, everything starts to change. Her best friend, Soojin, is changing her name to be more American and hanging out with Emily, one of the popular girls. Where does Amina fit? Should she change who she is? While Amina struggles with these questions, Amina’s mosque is vandalized, and Amina doesn’t know what to do.
Amina’s Voice is an interesting and moving book that takes place in school and at home. The story is very meaningful, but I wish the author said what happened to the mosque at the end. This is a great book for boys and girls ages 10 and up because it has some vocabulary that is hard and confusing. Overall, the book was very good (but a bit sad).
