Saying Goodbye is often more than the wave of a hand, a cheery "See you tomorrow," or an As
Salaam'Alaykum. Sometimes these everyday words and gestures are taken for granted. Rose is
about to learn there are many reasons for saying goodbye.
As the school year ends, a kaleidoscope of unexpected events throws Rose into a tailspin! The
Hijab-Ez Summer Plan is wrecked and the Hijab-Ez must cope with a loss. Tragedy strikes and
Rose must say a forever-kind-of-goodbye. Fahd consoles Rose and gives her hope when he
says, "Allah willing, you will get something better to replace what you have lost." Fahd is right!
Rose needs courage and hope to overcome her sadness when saying goodbye to Fahd and Abdul
who are going home to Saudi Arabia. Rose struggles to find a way to be brave. Just when Rose
thinks nothing else could possibly happen to change her life, Grandma reveals her secret to the
whole family and saying goodbye takes on a whole new meaning for Rose.
