Ustaz Ali, which won third place at the prestigious annual F. Scott Fitzgerald Literary Festival, is a coming-of-age tale set at a Catholic School in Amman, Jordan, in the late eighties.
Two friends, one Muslim and one Christian find themselves growing apart when one decides to wear the Hijab, while the other rebels against norms and traditions amid complex political and religious circumstances.
It’s a tale about friendship and the subtle societal differences that push us apart against our will.
