I love this adventurous story for tweens about a Jumanji style board game that's Middle Eastern inspired. It's fast paced from the moment Farah's little brother gets sucked into the game and she and her friends try to rescue him. The main characters are Muslim, and the cover even features girls wearing hijabs, which I think is really cool, and so, so important for diverse representation!
