Nadine Jolie Courtney
In Courtney's (Romancing the Throne, 2017) timely story, a high school sophomore is caught between two worlds as she battles Islamophobia, privilege, and questions of faith. Allie Abraham seems to have it all: she’s a straight-A student, has plenty of friends, a close-knit family, and she’s dating cute Wells Henderson. For safety and convenience she's managed to keep her Muslim heritage a secret from everyone including Wells whose father is a nationally known Islamophobic bigot. But after witnessing acts of prejudice in her small town, Allie feels compelled to embrace her faith and explore what it means to be a Muslim

Since she started training with a legendary coach, Gravity has won a pair of Golden Gloves and at 16, she's good enough to have a shot at the 2016 Summer Olympics. But her home life is reaching a tipping point and the neglect she and her younger brother suffer at the hands of their alcoholic mother threaten Gravity's Olympic dreams.
