On picture day, Faizah wears her special red dress with matching hair ribbons, then realizes she and her older sister, Asiya, don't match like her classmates and their siblings do, until a random act of kindness fixes all that.
I work in youth services. I like to read all kinds of books, although I have a soft spot for dog stories. I spend a good portion of my time rooting for the Reds and visiting ballparks all around the country. I have been known to walk my basset hound, watch Disney movies, ride my scooter and sing silly songs.
