A book about the power of love and resistance from New York Times bestselling authors Becky Albertalli and Aisha Saeed. Jamie Goldberg is cool with volunteering for his local state senate candidate—as long as he’s behind the scenes. Maya Rehman’s having the worst Ramadan ever. Why her mother thinks the solution to her problems is political canvassing—with some awkward dude she hardly knows—is beyond her.
