If his name is Bijan Majidi, life is suddenly high fives in the hallways and invitations to exclusive parties along with an anonymous photo sent by a school cyberbully that makes Bijan look like a terrorist. The administration says they ll find and punish the culprit. Bijan wants to pretend it never happened. He s not ashamed of his Middle Eastern heritage; he just doesn t want to be a poster child for Islamophobia. Lots of classmates rally around Bijan.
