American Fever

On a year-long exchange programme, sixteen-year-old Hira must swap the bustle of urban Pakistan for church and volleyball practice in rural Oregon.

Stuck between two worlds, her experience of America is sometimes freeing, sometimes painful, often quite painful. And while she faces racism and Islamophobia, she also makes new friends and has her first kiss.

But when her new life is blown apart by a shocking health crisis, Hira's sense of belonging is overturned once again — forcing her to consider her place in the world.

'Marks the debut of a thrilling new global voice'Peter Ho Davies

'Unforgettable... Rarely does a book sharpen how you see the world around you, but American Fever does just that. It dazzled me on every page' — Julie Buntin, author of Marlena
