"Sara Farizan is just the voice YA needs right now."

NOW IN PAPERBACK!

"Farizan exceeds the high expectations she set with her debut, If You Could Be Mine, in this fresh, humorous, and poignant exploration of friendship and love, a welcome addition to the coming-out/coming-of-age genre." - Publishers Weekly, starred review


Leila has made it most of the way through Armstead Academy without having a crush on anyone, which is a relief. As an Iranian-American, she's different enough; if word got out that Leila liked girls, life would be twice as hard. But when beautiful new girl Saskia shows up, Leila starts to take risks she never thought she would. As she carefully confides in trusted friends about Saskia's confusing signals, Leila begins to figure out that all her classmates are more complicated than they first appear to be, and some are keeping surprising secrets of their own.

"Farizan fashions an empowering romance featuring a lovable, awkward protagonist who just needs a little nudge of confidence to totally claim her multifaceted identity." - Booklist, starred review

"A David Levithan - style romance in which a character's sexual identity is neither problematic nor in question, and coming out is just one of many obstacles affecting the course of true love." - The Horn Book Magazine

"Funny, heartwarming and wise." - Kirkus Reviews

"Leila's coming out to her friends and family and her fear of disappointing her parents will resonate with all young adults." - School Library Journal
