This realistic fiction tells the story of Rubina trying to fit into American culture while her mother sticks to their family oriented Arab culture. What will Rubina do when her mother makes her bring her sister to a birthday party? Readers will be able to empathize with Rubina, and students who come from family oriented cultures may identify with her. This book is appropriate for primary students. ( )
