It Ain't so Awful Falafel By Firoozeh Dumas


Zomorod [Cindy] Yousefzadeh is the new kid on the block. . . for the 4th time. California's Newport Beach is her family's latest home, and she's determined to change her name to an American name. It's the late 1970's and it's becoming harder and harder to fit in. Iran makes U.S. headlines with protests, revolution, and the taking of American hostages. Nothing can distract Cindy from anti-Irans.
