A NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER AND AN AMAZON BEST BOOK OF 2019!'A ground-breaking picture book about religion, sisterhood and identity' Waterstones Best Picture Books of 2020Asiya's hijab is like the ocean and the sky, no line between them, saying hello with a loud wave. It's Faizah's first day of school, and her older sister Asiya's first day of hijab - made of a beautiful blue fabric.

But not everyone sees hijab as beautiful. In the face of hurtful, confusing words, will Faizah find new ways to be strong?This is an uplifting, universal story of new experiences, the unbreakable bond shared by siblings and of being proud of who you are, from Olympic medallist Ibtihaj Muhammad. 'Stark, spiky silhouettes suggest the impact of casual unkindness, while strong, simple poetic language evokes Asiya's calm determination to ignore intolerance' GUARDIAN'Beautifully done; a celebration of the sibling bond and a powerful story of resilience and being proud of who you are.'
