It Aint So Awful, Falafel by Firoozeh Dumas
Zomorod ( Cindy) Yousefzadeh is the new kid on the block . . . for the fourth time. California's Newport Beach is her family's latest perch, and she's determined to shuck her brainy lonely persona and start afresh with a new Brady Bunch name. It's the late 1970's, and fitting in becomes more difficult as Iran makes U.S. headlines with protests, revolution, and finally the taking of American hostages. Neither summer camp nor puka shell necklaces can distract Cindy from the anti-Iran sentiments that creep way too close to home.
