This was an engrossing read! A bit fast, maybe, but Rania's experience with immigration and murky family history made for an interesting, humanizing story. I kind of want a sequel! #yalit

Absolutely loved this one. Harper's journey from an anxiety-riddled perfectionist to a more present, deliberate girl is so realistic and relatable, and the familial discoveries were wonderful. I wish there had been more of a reckoning with Harper's mom, but I don't think less of the story for not including it. #yalit

Amina visits Pakistan and comes home to share the truth about it. A great middle grade novel that should be on all classroom shelves including those in Florida.

I felt like I had to force myself to read this book, and I kind of regret it. I didn't care about the characters much, and the ending felt contrived. It may be common for thrillers to have liar MCs, but it felt in poor taste for Amelie to be lying about her complications from being a preemie. Not sure the broader messages about society meshed well with the horror elements here. #yalit #yahorror

I loved how this book was all about Addie's journey, her character development, rather than a love story. The romance was just hinted at, hardly there at all. I actually wish the book had been longer. When I got to the end, it felt like it was just beginning.

Nick and Charlie ARE proof soul mates exist, thanks, Alice!!! Their struggle to just talk about their feelings was so realistic, and Charlie's grand gesture made my heart sing. #yalit #yaromance

It's an okay read. The beginning and middle was very good, ending mehh... very confusing and kind of left wide open for interpretation of what is actually going on..

Woof. This book was wrenching in all the best ways. I loved the lyricism of Salama's thoughts and the romance she shared with Kenan. Best have some tissues nearby for this one. #yalit

3✨ They have a good story line, but there is a lot of Jessica‘s mistakes in it. She makes bad decisions dragging Elizabeth into them, and then gets mad at her because it didn‘t go the way she wanted.
