Who would this book be good for?

This book would be great for teenage girls. I would say teens because this book is dealing with kids that is in high school. But it would be good for younger kids to so it can show them it don't matter what people say about you just do what you want. I like this book because she didn't care that she had a different religion then the people in her school. She showed us that no mater what you wear you are beautiful as long as you believe in yourself. I also like that her friends was their to help her out since they wear theirs too. Another reason i like this book is because of how supportive her parents was even tho they were nervous for her. This book is just amazing it shows bravery.
