Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

From the critically acclaimed author of Amina's Voice comes a story inspired by Louisa May Alcott's beloved classic Little Women, featuring four sisters from a modern Pakistani American family living in Norcross, Georgia.

Jameela Pervaiz wants to be an award-winning journalist like her late grandfather and is thrilled to be selected as feature editor of her school newspaper, a huge honor for a seventh-grader. Unfortunately, the editor in chief keeps shooting down her article ideas. When she's assigned to write about the new boy in school, whom everyone is buzzing about because of his British accent, Jameela wonders how she'll make his story gripping enough to enter into a national media contest.

Then Jameela, along with her three sisters, is devastated when her father accepts a job offer overseas that will take him away from their cozy Georgia home for six months. Missing him makes Jameela more determined to write an epic article - one that will make her dad extra proud. But when her younger sister's health declines, Jameela's world turns upside down. And as her eagerness for recognition and awards looks like it might cost her a blossoming friendship, Jameela questions what matters most and whether she's cut out to be a star reporter after all.

   Perfect book with a great message!
Family relationships are wonderful. They love each other dearly, but still have their arguments. The book brings up important issues that Muslim Americans face in school, like micro-aggression, dating and pure racism. Such a great book with such a positive message!
   Great Tween Book Selection! Would highly recommend!
What a fantastic book for a not-so-fantastic time in the USA. I chose this title to be the first selection for our virtual book club Diverse Voices. Our club was a mix of grown-ups and middle school students and loved this book from start to finish. The book leads you through life with a Muslim family in America, as told by one of their 4 daughters. Louisa May Alcott was inspired by her own childhood favorite, Khan's Little Women. Alcott's book More To The Story harkens back to Khan's text with beautiful details that will appreciate Little Women fans. If you are interested in expanding the diversity of voices on your bookshelf or just looking for a wonderful book to read with your tween, I can not recommend this book enough.
The modern take on the classic Little Women is a fabulous fit for today's middle readers. Charming adult characters and their relationships with young characters and among themselves make it easy to fall into friendship with this family and the obstacles they face make it difficult to put them down.
   A Beautiful Story
I chose this book because I am trying to absorb all the ways that Little Women are still shared 150 years later, and I am so glad that this particular book has found me! Each of the four sisters'names starts with the letter of the corresponding March sister, and there are quite a number of parallel events and characters. I also loved that the family is Muslim and shows this aspect of life in such a positive way. I highly recommend '' this book!
   Little Women in spades
This is an interesting take on Little Women, as it takes place in modern times, the story of four Muslim girls, and takes place outside Atlanta Georgia. Other than that, not much has changed. ) It is a good interpretation and the narrator has a cute voice and is very stubborn.
   Modern day Little Women
I love this book absolutely! It is about four sisters, their relationship with each other, growing up, middle school, illness, friends and more. It reminded me so much of my sisters and myself and also one of my favorite books about sisters, Little Women. When I got to the end and read the author's note, I was delighted to see that it was also one of her favorites. I can not wait to share this book with readers old and young!
   Sweet story that tackles a lot of topics
This was a good story that tackles a lot of topics - death of a parent, illness of a sibling, racism and battling stereotypes, and even the pillars of sweet journalism. Hena Khan does a good job of presenting the story on Little Women, but making it her own. There were a few moments where the writing got rushed and things felt lax towards the end, but overall, I enjoyed it.
