"Being a Muslim teenager in America has become that much easier with the publication of this much-needed and timely book. Written in a highly engaging, non-preachy style, American Muslim teens will find answers to practically every question that may occur to them concerning lifestyle issues and religious concerns. Strongly recommended for not only these teenagers but their parents as well." --Dr. Asma Afsaruddin Associate Professor of Arabic and Islamic Studies University of Notre Dame

Author of No God but God: The Origins, Evolution, and Future of Islam
“What a book! Filled with basic information about Islam in a very straightforward way, it then applies these religious truths to the life of a teenager. I wish every major faith had just such a book for teens of their faith. We could then share them and learn to understand and respect each other and work together to build peace in the world." -Dr. Paul Eppinger Executive Director - Arizona Interfaith Movement
"An important contribution for the education of young American Muslims providing important guidelines on becoming American and Muslim."

“There’s no magic formula to be a successful teen, but this book is close. I wish this book had existed when I was a teenager. Read what other kids your age had to say about the same things, and use this book as a springboard to discuss these issues with your parents and friends.”
-Asma Gull Hasan
Author of American Muslims: The New Generation and Why I Am A Muslim: An American Odyssey
“I believe it is a path-breaking and invaluable window into how some Muslim teens are coping with the challenges of growing up in the West. I found it both eye opening and encouraging. It gives me hope for the future. As such, it is a must read for all who care about the future of Islam in the West.”
-Dr. Jeffrey Lang
Author of Struggling to Surrender, Even Angels Ask: A Journey to Islam in America, and Losing My Religion: A Call For Help
"I think it's one of the best books for our teenagers and new Muslims. The knowledge of Islam is clear and easy to understand. This book presents an intimate look at the lives of Muslims and the basic beliefs of Islam. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!"

"This is a terrific, personable, and useful book for young Muslims and for people of all ages and faiths including the secular, who are still trying to figure out the difference between a great majority of actual American Muslims-- real people like the rest of us-- and the crazed stereotypes generated by war headlines thousands of miles away. Full of candor, contemporary savvy and wisdom beyond mere years, the Handbook should be in the hands and on the minds of inquiring Americans everywhere." - Michael Wolfe Author of the Hadj and Taking Back Islam: American Muslims Reclaim Their Faith, Film Producer of Muhammad: Legacy of a Prophet
