Saving Kabul Corner
N.H. Senzai

A rough and tumble tomboy, twelve-year-old Ariana couldn't be more different from her cousin Laila, who just arrived from Afghanistan with her family. When a rival Afghan grocery store opens near Ariana's family store, it reignites a decades-old feud tracing back to Afghanistan. The cousins, their friend Mariam, and their newfound frenemy, Waleed Ghilzai, must ban together to help the families find a lasting peace before it destroys both businesses and everything their parents have worked for.
