First of all, the cover of this book is adorable! I love the illustration in this and how bright and playful it is. This book touched on delicate topics in terms of islamophobia, racism, and many more. It’s a vague blurb but really sets the scene and doesn’t build any expectation to be judged upon.
Girl meets boy, ghosts his text messages, then convinces him to help her run for the student union. Just your typical love story with a hijabi twist.
Tara wears hijab even though her parents hate it, and in a swipe right world she’s looking for the ‘will go to the ends of the earth for you’ type of love. Or, she would be, if she hadn’t sworn off boys to focus on getting into med. Besides, what’s wrong with just crushing on the assassins, mages and thieves in the fantasy books she reads?
