If I Try, I Can Touch the Sky
by Aisha Naveed

Zoya isn’t quite like other children her age. Raised in an immigrant family, Zoya struggles to find acceptance among the other children at school because of her looks and background. However, Zoya is ambitious and determined. With a supportive family and a heart full of passion, Zoya embarks on a quest to find her life’s calling. Yet at every turn, she’s met with resistance. Her parents tell her the sky is the limit, but others are keen to bring her down to earth at every turn. Join Zoya as she embraces her identity, her passions, and makes her way through a world that doesn’t want her to touch the sky. Guarding her inner fire, Zoya learns to trust those who love her and fight for what she believes.
