When Nada and Sahar first meet at school, Nada greets
Sahar but Sahar does not respond. Several incidents
occur after that and the day ends with the two girls
angry at each other. The next day Nada discovers that
Sahar has a hearing problem and the girls figure out the
misunderstandings between them.
The story is narrated twice, once by Nada and once by
Sahar, which teaches readers to view things from other
people’s perspectives. The story teaches children not
to be quick in judging others and to be candid.
