2017 Nomination (not yet selected): 
Amina shares with us her shyness, her jealousy when her best friend welcomes the friendship of another, her worries about her brother. She just happens to be Muslim. When, in the later chapters of the book her mosque is vandalized the emphasis is on the support of the community. I appreciated that the iman was going to participate in the dunking game at the carnival. A story that creates a feeling of inclusiveness. Ten to Fourteen -Edie Ching
