Get ready for some amazing story beats with this debut middle grade book, Barakah Beats! Perfect for fans of Front Deskand Amina's Voice, Nimra is starting a new school and winds up singing in the popular boy band. But will she be able to tell her new-found friends that sining conflicts with her faith?
I loved this book for the friendship and the honesty around the difficulty fitting in - even when you find your group - a fantastic choice for ages 9-12.
