From the beloved author of Amina’s Voice comes an all-new middle grade series starring a young Muslim girl determined to break a Guinness World Record and prove she’s still the master of fun among the neighborhood kids.
Zara Saleem is the queen of the neighborhood.
Zara’s in charge of it all: she organizes the games, picks the teams, and always makes sure everybody is having a good time…her way.
Until a new family moves in across the street and suddenly Zara’s reign is threatened by Naomi, who seems to have lots of good ideas about how the neighborhood kids can have fun. To reclaim her crown, Zara decides she’s going to break a Guinness World Record to get everyone to notice her again.
But as her friends abandon her for Naomi’s better ideas, Zara starts to wonder whether being a good friend might be more important than getting everybody to follow her rules.
