Najiyah Diana Helwani’s Sophia’s Journal: Time Warp 1857
Diana Helwani’s novel. Here is the synopsis from the PRLog Press release on the topic.
Sophia’s Journal: Time Warp 1857, is a genre-crossing science fiction tale and coming-of-age story. Sophia Ahmad is an American Muslim high school sophomore on the verge of getting her driver’s permit and embarking on a summer of mall visits and evenings at Café Damascus with her friends, when she falls into the Kansas River and is washed downstream. Sophia emerges, sopping and water-worn, in the year 1857. Her experiences there combine Kansas history and a unique coming-of-age with her heroine’s Islamic faith. The result is a story that weaves itself around readers’ hearts, whether they are Muslim or Non-Muslim, native born American or immigrant, young or old.
