Does My Head Look Big In This?

Lawyer-cum-author Randa Abdel Fattah tells a story about an Australian Muslim girl, Amal, who was inspired to don the hijab after watching an episode of Friends. Despite receiving a lot of prejudice and backlash from several individuals in her area, Amal kept her head held high and is never afraid to stand up for what she believes in. Though this book may be published roughly 11 years ago, the challenges faced by the character such as racism and Islamophobia unfortunately are still relatable to this very day.
