“At school I’m Aussie-blond Jamie – one of the crowd. At home I’m Muslim Jamilah – driven mad by my Stone Age dad. I should win an Oscar for my acting. But how long can I keep it up?”
Jamie wants to be the real thing, right down from the roots of her dyed-blonde hair. But there lots of things that Jamie hates about her life: her black hair, her stuffy old dad, and her real name – Jamilah Towfeek. Most of all, she hates herself for hiding her Lebanese-Muslim background from friends at school. The only person she can confide in is the anonymous boy she chats to online. But now the best-looking boy in her class wants to date her. Her dad will never allow it, and her double life can’t be a secret much longer. Who will find true love – Jamie or Jamilah? Funny, topical and heart-wrenching, this is a moving and richly believable story of family loyalty, identity and finding oneself.
