Leila, or Lulu as she prefers to be called, doesn't always fit in. She’s a rebellious Muslim girl growing up in Houston, Texas. As she navigates the treacherous waters of high school, Lulu must balance her defiant behavior with the expectations of her family and friends. During Ramadan, after she gets in a fight with a family friend, she must make amends, all the while still negotiating her friendships and the budding relationship with the new boy at school.
