Note: 
A timely accessible story that explores themes of food, friendship and family. Sixth graders Sara, a Pakistani American and Elizabeth, a white Jewish girl meet at a South Asian cooking class. While their friendship does not seem likely at first, they bond over feelings of isolation and “otherness, financial hardships in their families, and a need to strike back against micro-aggression and outright bigotry in their Maryland community. Both Muslim and Jewish traditions are depicted.
