She Became My Bestfriend
*This has no hate towards Muslims by the way if anyone thought so:)*
"My name is Hazel Owens and I will never forget September 11, 2001. I lost my mother on that day. I was only four years old when it happened. Every time I see a Muslim the pain comes back again..."
Hazel Owens is a girl who lost her mother in the 9/11 incident when she was a child. It was a day she would never forget. Ever since she was small she grew up with a hatred towards Muslims. Moving away from the memories and starting a new life over, Hazel and her father Thomas moved to South Carolina. Life there was amazing for her. She was smart, popular, and was adored by all around her.
On Hazel's 18th birthday her school threw a surprise party for her.
The same day of her party the principle walked in introducing their new student. Her name was Amina and she was a Muslim girl from London.
Amina is the only Muslim in Hazel's school and Hazel doesn't like it. Hazel treats her very bad. Not only that, she gets threatened and bullied. Things get so bad for Amina and she wants to move.
Hazel discovers something, that they're not so different after all. She finds out they may be closer than she thinks.
