"It looks like someone took a big bite out of the moon--and that marks the beginning of Ramadan! As her Abba and Ammi prepare for their month-long fast, Aliya has a secret: she's going to fast, too! Even though Ammi told her she's not allowed to until she turns thirteen. At school, Aliya starts her secret fast full of determination. She skips lunch, despite her rumbling tummy, and doesn't give in even when she's offered a birthday cupcake with sprinkles! But, later in the day, while baking baklava with Amma, the temptation proves too hard to resist and she takes a big bite. At first, Aliya is terribly disappointment in herself for giving in to her hunger, but she soon learns that there are other ways that she can celebrate Ramadan. She and her parents spend the month preparing and delivering meals to people in need. And after celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr, the Festival of Breaking the Fast, Aliya looks forward to doing her own month-long fast in a few years--but no more secrets for her!"--,Provided by publisher.
