More to the Story
A retelling of Little Women starring four Muslim sisters. Dad has to take a job in another country and little sister gets cancer. The family has to find a way to work through all the difficulties they are having. Jameela is a budding journalist and wants to make her dad proud while he is away. The family is supported by a wonderful group of family and friends. We also meet Ali whose father has died so he was sent to live with aunt and uncle in America. He becomes part of the family as well even though there are tensions after an article mixup in the school newspaper.
I loved the family dynamic of this story. Khan got the sisters just right with their interactions and infighting but obvious love of each other. I loved the supporting community who came together to help the family.
