Please respond to both prompts:
1) In what ways is Marji’s self identity crisis typical of an average teenager, now on her own, and in what ways is it complicated by her religion and her feelings of estrangement from her family and Iran?
2) There are two chapters in the book both titled “The Veil”, one in the first half of the book and one in the latter half. Why do you think the author/illustrator did this? In what ways are the chapters similar? different?
