Salaam, A Muslim American Boys Story by Tricia Brown
Imran takes karate, enjoys hanging out with his friends and celebrates special religious holidays with his family. Imran is like any other boy in America except he is a Muslim. His mother receives a threatening phone call because people don't like her faith. Imran is hopeful that once people get to know his faith they will like him the way his friends and neighbors do. Tricia Brown teaches about Islam through Imran's story. From a Muslim perspective the book gives an apologetic view of Islam with an emphasis on fitting in.
