Indies Introduce

Young Adult

  • Saints and Misfits, S.K. Ali
    Salaam Reads, 9781481499248, June 13, 2017 (Young Adult)

    “In an ideal world, Saints and Misfits wouldn’t need to be an important tent-pole book of Muslim representation; it would be one of many books about Muslim teens doing all sorts of things. And then we could just talk about how it’s a funny, sharp, feminist book that tackles real issues with grace. It’s just really good. Read it, for that reason and more.”

    Anna Kaufman, DIESEL: A Bookstore (Santa Monica, CA)

    "Saints and Misfits is 2017's must-read contemporary novel. S.K. Ali has given us a sharp and relatable heroine in Janna, as well as a fully realized supporting cast of unforgettable characters. Deftly handles several heavy topics including attempted assault."

    Allison Senecal, Old Firehouse Books (Fort Collins, CO)
