Karma Khullar's Mustache

(3) 4-6 Biracial Karma wrestles with anxiety about starting middle school. In addition to changes at home and the arrival of a mean new girl seemingly intent on stealing her best friend, Karma is mortified by the seventeen dark hairs she has discovered on her upper lip. Despite almost relentless humiliations, Karma becomes a satisfyingly well-adjusted and resilient sixth grader who admirably handles her changing life.
