* "Fresh take on the immigrant experience—authentic, funny, and moving from beginning to end."—Kirkus Reviews, starred review
Zomorod (Cindy) Yousefzadeh is the new kid on the block. California’s Newport Beach is her family’s latest perch, and she’s determined to lose her brainy loner persona and start afresh with a new Brady Bunch name—Cindy. It’s the late 1970s, and fitting in becomes more difficult as Iran makes headlines with protests, revolution, and the taking of American hostages. Even puka necklaces, pool parties, and flying fish can't distract Cindy from the anti-Iran sentiments that creep too close to home in this poignant but lighthearted story.
