With the Iowa Caucus not 48 hours behind us and many months before Nov. 3, a number of folks are politically minded, we thought it would be fun to discuss a novel that is extremely timely. We are pleased to announce that our first book discussion of 2020 is…Yes, No, Maybe So by Becky Albertalli and Aisha Saeed.
We’ll be posting our group discussion on March 4th! Be sure to grab a copy so you can jump into our discussion. We’re looking forward to hearing what you think of the book!
Yes, No, Maybe So
by 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. When it comes to speaking to strangers (or, let’s face it, speaking at all to almost anyone), Jamie’s a choke artist. There’s no way he’d ever knock on doors to ask people for their votes…until he meets Maya.
Maya Rehman’s having the worst Ramadan ever. Her best friend is too busy to hang out, her summer trip is canceled, and now her parents are separating. Why her mother thinks the solution to her problems is political canvassing—with some awkward dude she hardly knows—is beyond her.
Going door to door isn’t exactly glamorous, but maybe it’s not the worst thing in the world. After all, the polls are getting closer—and so are Maya and Jamie. Mastering local activism is one thing. Navigating the cross-cultural romance of the century is another thing entirely.
