Book Review: Yes No Maybe So

Title: Yes No Maybe So

Author: Becky Albertalli & Aisha Saeed

# of Pages: 448yes No Maybe so

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.

I don’t often read contemporary novels, but when I saw that Becky Albertalli was releasing a new book, I made an exception. There were an equal amount of likes and dislikes I encountered as I read through it. Let’s start with the negatives first.

Most Anticipated Releases: Now – May

Priory of the Orange Tree – February 26

Samantha Shannon, author of The Bone Season, is releasing a high fantasy novel. It features both magic AND dragons. Do I need to say more? I am looking forward to this novel because I greatly enjoyed the first three books of The Bone Season. I enjoyed the world building, getting to know all about London and the way it worked, As a high fantasy novel, I am sure that there will be quite a bit of information and world building that we need to have in order to understand to throughly enjoy this novel.
