At school Im Aussie-blonde Jamie -- one of the crowd. At home Im Muslim Jamilah -- driven mad by my Stone Age dad. I should win an Oscar for my acting skills. But I cant keep it up for much longer...
Jamie just wants to fit in. She doesnt want to be seen as a stereotypical Muslim girl, so she does everything possible to hide that part of herself.

10 Things I Hate About You clip (1999)
In there was an attempt to recapture the rom-com's magic with a short-lived 10 Things I Hate About You TV show, but it lacked the chemistry of the original. At the time, she was reportedly nervous about the role as she was a decade older than her cast mates. After 10 Things she continued in teen movies, starring in Bring It On in The only problem? Her sister has absolutely no interest in dating and is focused on attending Sarah Lawrence College instead. In a twist, Oleynik attended Sarah Lawrence in real life. Apparently Oleynik originally auditioned for both Kat and Bianca, but was more interested in playing the feminist riot girl Kat.
Sign in. Breakout star Erin Moriarty of " The Boys " explains how her newfound popularity is fueling Season 2 of the hit series. Watch now. A rich high school student tries to boost a new pupil's popularity, but reckons without affairs of the heart getting in the way. Cady Heron is a hit with The Plastics, the A-list girl clique at her new school, until she makes the mistake of falling for Aaron Samuels, the ex-boyfriend of alpha Plastic Regina George. A clean-cut high school student relies on the school's rumor mill to advance her social and financial standing.
Look at this cute cover. Look at the legendary-rom-com-referencing title. Does this book look serious to you? None of the other Aussie YA books that have come across the pond to the US have even mentioned racial relations, which are as difficult there as everywhere else on the planet. When Peter opens his yap, you understand exactly why she felt it was necessary. I do, however, wonder how she pulled off the ruse.
