Skunk Girl by Sheba Karim - ADVISABLE


Karim, Sheba. Skunk Girl. Farrar, Straus and Giroux. 2009. Pgs. 240. Language: PG, Sexual Content: PG-13, Violence: G. 

Nina just wants to fit in; but her Pakistani, Muslim values just aren't quite the norm. Her friends are caring but don't quite understand why she isn't making her own choices. What will Nina choose when the cutest boy in school wants to go out with her? What will her parents say when a boy calls? Nina learns to make choices and finds her own personal values in this endearing tale.
