I Love I Hate I Miss My Sister by Amelie Sarn
This is a poignant story told about sisterhood and tragedy. Based on a true story it tells the story of Sohane, a Muslim teenager in France, who decides to wear a head scarf after a law has been passed declaring it illegal in schools. At the same time, her younger sister Djelila is shunning her Muslim heritage and acting as French and modern as she can. When some neighborhood Muslim boys begin to bully Djelila for not following the Muslim customs, she does not realize just how dangerous the Muslim bullies are. This is a short and sad story that brings to light the injustices that Muslims force upon women and tells a tale of sisterhood.
