Growing Up Muslim in Australia

Muslim people in Australia come from over seventy countries and represent a wide variety of cultural backgrounds and experiences. Yet we are constantly bombarded by media stories feeding one negative stereotype. What is it really like to grow up Muslim in Australia? In this book, famous and not-so-famous Muslim-Australians tell their stories in their own voices. The beard, the hijab, the migrant - these are all familiar images associated with Muslim people. But delve deeper and there are many other stories: the young female boxer entering the ring for her first professional bout; a ten-year-old boy who renounces religion; a young woman struggling to reconcile her sexual identity with her faith. These honest and heartfelt stories will resonate with all readers, providing different snapshots of Muslim life in Australia, dispelling myths and stereotypes, and above all celebrating diversity, achievement, courage and determination.With stories by Randa Abdel-Fattah, Arwa Abousamra, Michael Mohammed Ahmad, Tanveer Ahmed, Ali Alizadeh, Amal Awad, Tasneem Chopra, Hazem El Masri, Bianca Elmir, Sabrina Houssami-Richardson, Alyena Mohummadally and Irfan Yusuf.'The kind of book that will change how readers look at the world. Coloured with many shades of humour, warmth, sadness, anger, determination and honesty, it will resonate with readers from all backgrounds and beliefs.' Bookseller+Publisher'It's hard to imagine a more varied group of young people, united only by the fact that they come from diverse Muslim backgrounds. Story after story explodes the stereotypes...' The Age'[W]hat is particularly striking is the diversity of backgrounds among the contributions. Perhaps it is not really surprising, given that Australian Muslims come from 70 different countries.' Thuy On, The Sydney Morning Herald
