“…a juxtaposition of two beach experiences, one Iranian and one American.Genuine.” –Kirkus Reviews

Saffron Ice Cream

Written by Rashin Kheiriyeh
Published by Arthur A. Levine Books

Rashin is excited about her first visit to the beach in her family’s new home. On the way there, she remembers what beach trips were like in Iran, the beautiful Caspian Sea, the Persian music, and most of all, the saffron ice cream she shared with her best friend, Azadeh. But there are wonderful things in this new place as well — a subway train, exciting music… and maybe even a new friend!
