About this book
Three young Muslim girls in Indonesia discover their passion for heavy metal music in this empowering new picture book
In a small village in Java, Indonesia, three young Muslim girls begin to explore their passion for heavy metal music after watching a Metallica concert on YouTube. They worry about what their parents and friends—and even their Imam—will think about their new interest. But they persevere regardless, and find new meaning in their lives and new ways to connect to their religion.
The stories told in the Against All Odds picture book series are true stories of brave boys and girls from different parts of the world, who, with their small everyday actions, beat the odds and achieve something great. The series is intended to promote diversity and acceptance by exposing children to kids’ stories from faraway places facing unique situations or overcoming prejudice.Brand: Claudia Bellante
