From Reem Faruqi, award-winning author of UnsettledMilloo's Mind, and Amira's Picture Day, comes an empowering picture book about a girl who counters bullying with love, peace, and kindness, and stands up for her Muslim culture and identity.

My name is Salma, which means peace.

Islam also means peace.

I wish more people knew that.

Salma is Muslim, an identity she takes pride in. But not everyone understands Salma’s religion the way she does, including news reporters and even a boy in her class, who bullies Salma for belonging to the culture and faith she loves. However, when things go too far, Salma finds the courage to defend herself.
