 An empowering story of persistence and believing in yourself!

Samar has recently moved to America from Syria, and everything is new. Even the jump rope games at recess are unfamiliar. It doesn't help that Jenna, the class bully, keeps making fun of Samar's accent.

Samar decides to enter the school spelling bee to prove once and for all that she's smarter than everyone thinks! But learning the words turns out harder than she thought. Can Samar be persistent and compete in the school spelling bee?

This is a beautiful picture book about a young Syrian girl struggling to learn English after moving to America. I love the theme about working hard despite the obstacles in your way.
