From Linda Oatman Highs story of Sadie, who is shunned by her small Amish community, to Elsa Marstons Mujahhid, who grapples to understand the idea of jihad within the Israeli/Palestinian conflict, each of these thirteen adolescent protagonists is faced with a life-altering crisis that triggers an evaluation of the way he or she believes.
