"Karim's latest is a searing story of love in its many forms: young and old, romantic and familial, and maybe most complex, our capacity to love a place. A deep dive into the values of travel and firsthand experience, the book takes an unflinching look at poverty and complicity, sex and religion, without ever losing sight of what it is: family drama, rom-com, travelogue. Call it what you want, The Marvelous Mirza Girls is an utter delight." -- David Arnold, author of Mosquitoland and The Electric Kingdom

"Part self-discovery, part travelogue, all charming." -- Kendare Blake #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Three Dark Crowns series

Filled with beautiful imagery, sensory language, clever structuring, and humor, this is a romantic coming-of-age story.... An engaging and perceptive story of love, grief, and personal awakening. -- Kirkus Reviews

"A quiet, powerful romance recommended for fans of feminist stories like those by E.K. Johnston." -- School Library Journal

"While the #MeToo movement and female sexuality feature prominently in the narrative, this novel also feels like a love letter to New Delhi due to Karim's vivid descriptions of the city. Readers seeking more mature YA romance titles will definitely enjoy this offering." -- Booklist
