Immigrants are vital to American culture. In 2018, all of the Nobel Prize winners in Science were immigrants. The rate for all Nobel awards given to immigrants is 40%. And the most decorated US WWI veteran from Texas was actually a Mexican immigrant.
This book tells the story of a Syrian immigrant named Petra Momani who travels to America with her father and uncle. Her uncle is a famous chef who wants to break the Guinness World Record for largest falafel ever baked. This story tells how Petra fits into American culture and what it means to be an immigrant.
The book is due to release Spring 2019.
