Product description

Review

Yusuf Azeem Is Not A Hero will surely help spark many conversations about Islamophobia and xenophobia, as well as how much things have changed in the past 20 years. Faruqi's emotional story will resonate with older readers who lived through the events many years ago, and younger readers will gain insight on the lasting effects that the 9/11 attacks had on Americans and why they are an important part of history.--Booklist

[A] timely, hopeful middle grade novel.--
Publishers Weekly

A timely, emotional story full of hope and love even in the face of discrimination and prejudice.--
Kirkus Reviews

Faruqi effectively probes complexities of radical activism vs. peaceful accommodation as Muslim response to prejudice, as well as the non-Muslim community's deep discomfort in stepping beyond a bystander role in defense of their neighbors.--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

Faruqi finds engaging ways to explore how myriad tragedies of 9/11 have lodged in our memories, from uncomfortable questions in Yusuf's classroom to a conflict over the construction of a mosque... Among the novel's strengths is the hope it offers young readers, because despite the real menace from those who consider Muslim Americans "the enemy ... among us," Yusuf
does have allies. They cannot solve all his problems, but they can see him as we all hope our children will be seen, for their decency, potential and hearts.--New York Times Book Review

Gripping, well-paced, and poignant, this is an essential purchase for all libraries and a must-read book of our times that raises important questions about who controls historical narratives, what it means to stand up for justice, and the legacy of an event that cannot be forgotten.--School Library Journal
(starred review) --This text refers to the library edition.
