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 loner persona and start afresh with a new Brady Bunch name--Cindy. It's the late 1970s, and fitting in becomes more difficult as Iran makes U.S. headlines with protests, revolution, and finally the taking of American hostages. Even mood rings and puka shell necklaces can't distract Cindy from the anti-Iran sentiments that creep way too close to home. A poignant yet lighthearted middle grade debut from the author of the best-selling Funny in Farsi .

520 |a Iranian American Zomorod "Cindy" Yousefzadeh hopes that California's Newport Beach can be her last time being the new kid, at least for awhile. Unfortunately it is the 1970s, and with Iran bad in the headlines of American newspapers, being the new kid is the least of her worries.
