Love from A to Z
Love from A to Z | S. K. Ali
14 posts | 10 read | 18 to read
From William C. Morris Award Finalist S.K. Ali comes an unforgettable romance that is part The Sun Is Also a Star mixed with Anna and the French Kiss, following two Muslim teens who meet during a spring break trip. A marvel: something you find amazing. Even ordinary-amazing. Like potatoes—because they make French fries happen. Like the perfect fries Adam and his mom used to make together. An oddity: whatever gives you pause. Like the fact that there are hateful people in the world. Like Zayneb’s teacher, who won’t stop reminding the class how “bad” Muslims are. But Zayneb, the only Muslim in class, isn’t bad. She’s angry. When she gets suspended for confronting her teacher, and he begins investigating her activist friends, Zayneb heads to her aunt’s house in Doha, Qatar, for an early start to spring break. Fueled by the guilt of getting her friends in trouble, she resolves to try out a newer, “nicer” version of herself in a place where no one knows her. Then her path crosses with Adam’s. Since he got diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in November, Adam’s stopped going to classes, intent, instead, on perfecting the making of things. Intent on keeping the memory of his mom alive for his little sister. Adam’s also intent on keeping his diagnosis a secret from his grieving father. Alone, Adam and Zayneb are playing roles for others, keeping their real thoughts locked away in their journals. Until a marvel and an oddity occurs… Marvel: Adam and Zayneb meeting. Oddity: Adam and Zayneb meeting.

i really enjoyed this novel. Well this seems like it is just another The fault in our stars it is not. It is so much more than that. It explores not only racism but Islamaphobia as well. I thought the novel handled not only the mentioned issues really well but also Multiple scolorisis as well. Both of these issues of Islamaphobia and Ms are rarely addressed in novels, especially in the world of Ya books.

I really enjoyed this book. It's about a girl who is Muslim trying to just live her life but the struggles she has to face with racism in her every day life. When Zayneb gets suspended from school for a drawing she is sent to stay with her aunt in Qatar. There she meets Adam who is facing his own struggles. I really liked how this book was written and enjoyed the interactions among all the characters.

Love From A to Z is a beautiful exploration of the Marvels and Oddities in life. From Islamaphobia to triumph over hate, from sadness and fear to true love, Ali‘s sophomore book explores topics that have far too often been ignored in a way that educates without feeling preachy. It is a book that both teens and adults can learn from while also enjoying excellent prose.

One of my most-anticipated #DiverseYA books of 2019 has arrived! Love from A to Z is an #OwnVoices Islamic novel that is as much about romance as it is a social commentary on culture, prejudice, and fear. S.K. Ali is a phenomenal author and one of the kindest people ever! If you're participating in #RamadanReadathon, then this is a book you will NOT want to miss!

I didn't expect to love this book as much as I did! This book deals with some hard topics such as MS and Islamophobia. But the author did a beautiful job handling both topics. I was cheering on Adam and Zeynab from the beginning. This book gave me so many feels. Some happy and some sad. I need to check out the authors other book ASAP!!!!

I LOVE THIS BOOK SO MUCH. Disclaimer: I‘m mentioned in the acknowledgements. However this is the first time I‘ve read the book. It‘s so good but also really intense due to the Islamophobia that occurs in it but SK handles it well and you can‘t help but cheer on Adam and Zeynab. I highly recommend it!
