Teen Fiction With Muslim Heroes
Here are four recent YA novels (not memoir) featuring Muslim protagonists, the first two set in the western world, the second two taking place overseas:
When it comes to Muslim boys, I found two relatively recent novels I've not read, both featuring tweens and exploring the Israeli-Palestinian conflict: A Little Piece of Ground by Elizabeth Laird and Dr. Sonia Nimr, and Samir and Yonatan by Daniella Carmi.
I can't come up with even one contemporary fiction YA novel featuring an American, British, or North American teen guy hero of Middle Eastern or South Asian origin, Muslim or otherwise. (BTW, I'm glad to see another blogger ranting about the dearth of such titles.)
Suggestions and additions, please?
