"Waiting On" Wednesday! 14

Shine, Coconut Moon by Neesha Meminger

Samar--a.k.a. Sam--is an Indian-American teenager whose mom has kept her away from her old-fashioned family. It's never bothered Sam, who is busy with school, friends, and a demanding boyfriend. But things change after 9/11. A guy in a turban shows up at Sam's house--and turns out to be her uncle. He wants to reconcile the family and teach Sam about her Sikh heritage. Sam is eager, but when boys attack her uncle, chanting "Go back home, Osama!," Sam realizes she could be in danger--and also discovers how dangerous ignorance is.

Released March 10th 2009

Doesn't this one sound interesting! I love stories where people learn about their heritage and learn to balance it with what they already know and live!

What can't you wait for to be released?

"Waiting On" Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine!
