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.

  • Publisher's Weekly

    December 9, 2019
    Once childhood friends, deeply shy Jamie Goldberg, who is Jewish and white, and stability-loving Maya Rehman, who is Pakistani-American and Muslim, reconnect when pressured into working on the campaign of a progressive Senate hopeful. At 17, both are reluctant to dedicate their summers to canvassing in the Atlanta heat; this is especially so for Maya, whose best friend is college-bound at summer’s end, but her need to escape the constant reminders of her parents’ separation compels her to team up with Jamie to inform and persuade local voters. Soon, swept up in the passions and pressures leading to Election Day, the pair starts falling for each other, though Maya doesn’t date. They also learn firsthand that the political is personal when a proposed bill calls for “a partial ban on head and facial coverings while participating in certain public activities.” Albertalli and Saeed’s collaborative authorship is seamlessly achieved via alternating first-person narratives that offer a nuanced lens on the current U.S. political climate and individuals’ roles in democracy. With a convincing, relevant message about democratic responsibility, studded with references to activists, the authors offer an honest handling of cultural misunderstandings, microaggressions, and open communication via Jamie and Maya’s tight-knit families and developing relationship. Ages 14–up. (Feb.)

  • AudioFile Magazine Narrating alternating chapters, Michael Crouch and Tiya Sircar are just as appealing as the pair of Georgia teens they portray. Jamie and Maya are thrown together while canvassing for a local candidate. Crouch is endearingly awkward as Jamie, who's nervous about knocking on doors--but that's nothing compared to the idea of giving a speech at his little sister's bat mitzvah. Sircar conveys Maya's sunny personality as well as her vulnerability as she struggles with her parents' separation during Ramadan while also feeling estranged from her best friend. Their campaign work turns into passionate activism when a discriminatory bill is introduced in the Georgia legislature. Listeners will be equally invested in the progression of Jamie and Maya's relationship and the outcome of the election. J.M.D. � AudioFile 2020, Portland, Maine
