Nusaybah wishes she wasn't so different from Laura, the most popular girl in school. Perhaps, if they were more alike, Laura would like her.
Should Nusaybah change herself to gain Laura's friendship?
Or can she be liked for who she really is?
This is a story about a mermaid, who is different in terms of faith, appearance and lifestyle. She struggles to ‘fit in’, and faces challenges due to this, and all she wants is to be accepted for who she is. This story will encourage dialogue around the concept of self-discovery, acceptance and being unique.
