      “This compelling contemporary read features an unapologetic Indian-American heroine trying to navigate crushes, dreams for her future, and the expectations of her family in a world where her culture is routinely misunderstood. A timely read that deftly tempers difficult topics with levity and a wonderful narrative voice!”

      -Rebecca Wells, Porter Square Books (Cambridge, MA)

      “Facing the next steps after high school are never easy, and lovable Maya Aziz is trying to bridge the future her Muslim-Indian parents have laid out for her with her plan for film school in New York. Things really heat up when she finds herself in a secret relationship with a dreamy popular guy, and all feels lost when a terrifying terrorist attack re-shapes her community. This book is a nail-biter of a read with an unpredictable ending.”

      -Kim Bissell, Broadway Books (Portland, OR)
