Conflict and Confusion

For Sam (Samar), besides her name and her complexion she has no ties to her past. Her mother left her family, her religion and her upbringing behind when she had Sam. Now, just days after the 9/11 attacks, a man wearing a turban appears at her doorstep. He's her uncle.

Sam finds that she needs to know more about her Punjabi heritage, her family and her beliefs. Faced with racism and fear, Sam, her friends and her family try to figure out life in Shine, Coconut Moon by Neesha Meminger.
