Reviews

"These authentic teen girls are smart, complicated, sexual, and sensitive. Their friendships can be mean and messy, but they are also fiercely loyal. This rich story also explores biracial and mixed culture identity (Lulu has a white mom and an Arab dad) in all its joys and struggles." --School Library Journal

"As hilarious as it is heartwarming, this beautiful story about family, friendships, and one amazingly complex teenage girl will leave you begging for more." --Sandhya Menon, New York Times bestselling author of When Dimple Met Rishi

"Deftly written and darkly funny." --Katy Upperman, author of Kissing Max Holden

"An honest slice of teen life from a teen character you need to know." --Sara Farizan, author of If You Could Be Mine

"Engaging and unexpected, voice-y and full of verve, this a whip-smart swan dive into all the messiness of best friendships and new romance, fitting in and growing up." --Katie Cotugno, New York Times-bestselling author of How to Love

"An intense, emotional debut about finding one's place in the world and throwing off labels applied by other people." --Jodi Meadows, author of Before She Ignites

"Lulu Saad is exactly the girl YA fiction has been looking for: a fearless and beautiful Arab-American Muslim ready to take the world by storm. Sparkling with humor, wit and vulnerability, Safi's debut will make you laugh and cry." --Tanaz Bhathena, author of A Girl Like That

"Fiercely unapologetic and unapologetically fierce. This is exactly the kind of bold, messy, girl-driven, friendship-centric narrative that I have indeed been looking for." --Laurie Elizabeth Flynn, author of Firsts

"A sexy, multifaceted and beautifully complicated debut for anyone who has ever struggled with friendships, religion, and love. A must-read!" --Nisha Sharma, author of The Perfect Ending
