Delightful as a good cup of Chai. Window into a world I know nothing about: Canada's Muslim Community. Fun story yet also tackles issues of stereotyping. Particularly loved Ayesha & Clara's friendship. Two very different women, yet they are friends, who look out for one another & are always there for each other. I think Jane Austen would approve. 💖💕

Almost a So - So for me. In this Retelling of P&P it's Zuri(Elizabeth) who Dislikes at First Sight. She continually judges Darius (Darcy) and even at Come Together moment never actually admits to it. It's 'Ok.Yeah.' and then she justifies her actions some more. Makes her a hard character to like. Maybe Author's plan? Never quite got Darcy's motovation either. Ending moved it to a Pick.
