Yusuf Azeem Is Not a Hero

£12.99

Yusuf Azeem has spent all his life in the small town of Frey, Texas – and nearly that long waiting for the chance to participate in the regional robotics competition, which he just knows he can win. Only, this year is going to be more difficult than he thought. Because this year is the twentieth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, an anniversary that has everyone in his Muslim community on edge. With ‘Never Forget’ banners everywhere and a hostile group of townspeople protesting the new mosque, Yusuf realizes that the country’s anger from two decades ago hasn’t gone away. Can he hold onto his joy – and his friendships – in the face of heartache and prejudice?
