Publisher Description

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

YES

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.

NO

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.

MAYBE SO

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 loved this book! It was so clear that the authors lovingly incorporated details of their backgrounds into the story. I’ve never read a Jewish character whose identity wasn’t treated as a joke or was just casually brought up for diversity points. I laughed at the numerous complicated spreadsheets for Sophie’s bat mitzvah and felt it hard when Jamie said he never felt more Jewish than when experiencing hate. And as we approach more elections, it was inspiring to read about canvassing and the hope of changing on mind. This book might have finally convinced me to do some phone banking!
