Description of Resource

Leena finds herself positioned between two worlds.  During the holy month of Ramadan, she wants to fast on the one day her aunt is visiting, so Leena can celebrate with her family during the "iftar" dinner, when the fast is broken.  Yet, Leena receives an invitation for a classmate’s party that will take place on the same day.  This story describes how she celebrates with her friends from school while upholding her Muslim faith. 

Recommended for ages 6 and up.
