Welcome to this week’s edition of Wishlist Wednesday! Today I am featuring Yes No Maybe So by Becky Albertalli and Aisha Saeed. The synopsis for this contemporary YA has me laughing and I can’t wait to read it.

Summary (from Goodreads):

New York Times bestselling authors Becky Albertalli and Aisha Saeed have crafted a resonant, funny, and memorable story about the power of love and resistance.

YES
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.

NO
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.

MAYBE SO
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

Thoughts

I have never read a Becky Albertalli book that I didn’t enjoy. She always seems to write humorous stories that also dig deep. I think that this co-authored book is going to be all sorts of fun and the characters sound fantastic.
