More to the Story
by Hena Khan


Overview - From the critically acclaimed author of Amina's Voice comes a story inspired by Louisa May Alcott's beloved classic, Little Women, featuring four sisters from a modern Pakistani American family living in Norcross, Georgia.

Jameela Pervaiz wants to be an award-winning journalist like her late grandfather and is thrilled to be selected as feature editor of her school newspaper, a huge honor for a seventh grader. Unfortunately the editor-in-chief keeps shooting down her article ideas. When she's assigned to write about the new boy in school, who everyone is buzzing about because of his British accent, Jameela wonders how she'll make his story gripping enough to enter into a national media contest.

Then Jameela, along with her three sisters, is devastated when her father accepts a job offer overseas that will take him away from their cozy Georgia home for six months. Missing him makes Jameela more determined to write an epic article--one that will make her dad extra proud. But when her younger sister's health declines, Jameela's world turns upside down. And as her eagerness for recognition and awards looks like it might cost her a blossoming friendship, Jameela questions what matters most and whether she's cut out to be a star reporter after all...
