A book about the power of love and resistance from New York Times bestselling authors Becky Albertalli and Aisha Saeed.


Jamie Goldberg is cool with volunteering for his local state senate candidate—as long as he’s behind the scenes. When it comes to speaking to strangers (or, let’s face it, speaking at all to almost anyone) Jamie’s a choke artist. There’s no way he’d ever knock on doors to ask people for their votes…until he meets Maya.


Maya Rehman’s having the worst Ramadan ever. Her best friend is too busy to hang out, her summer trip is canceled, and now her parents are separating. Why her mother thinks the solution to her problems is political canvassing—with some awkward dude she hardly knows—is beyond her.


Going door to door isn’t exactly glamorous, but maybe it’s not the worst thing in the world. After all, the polls are getting closer—and so are Maya and Jamie. Mastering local activism is one thing. Navigating the cross-cultural crush of the century is another thing entirely.

I should start by saying I don't normally read books involving politics because I read to escape real life. That being said, I absolutely loved this book. I enjoyed it much more than I anticipated honestly.

Jamie and Maya's friendship was so heartwarming, and it was fun seeing them grow together. The situations they both face are very real. These two authors approached the sensitive subjects well and made it relatable to those who might not see such struggles in their own lives.

Despite usually trying to avoid political fiction, I found myself on edge, waiting to see if their candidate won. It was incredibly difficult to stop reading once I got into the story.
Good Points
- Real-life struggles handled well
- Relatable characters
- Easy to read and get sucked in
