520    O'Brien provides a look at the social worlds of a group of
       young male friends as they navigate the complexities of 
       growing up Muslim in America. These typical Muslim 
       American teenage boys are concerned with typical teenage 
       issues--girlfriends, school, parents, being cool--yet are 
       also expected to be good, practicing Muslims who don't 
       date before marriage, who avoid vulgar popular culture, 
       and who never miss their prayers. Americans unfamiliar 
       with Islam may see youths like these as potential ISIS 
       recruits, but they are focused instead on managing their 
       day-to-day cultural dilemmas.
