    Soho TEEN, 9781616958473, January 16, 2018 (Young Adult)

    “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)
