oh..my...god? a story featuring two brown girls falling in love? not to be dramatic, but this is everything i've ever wanted.

I had the privilege of reading this book a few months ago and it's honestly one of those stories that is life changing and healing. The story is about Nishat, a gay bengali student who enters a business competition at school, selling henna designs. The story is filled with so much unapologetic bengali pride, a beautiful (and hilarious) sibling relationship reminicent of kitty and lj from TATBILB and an amazing romance starring probably what I'd call my OTP. If it wasn't obvious... You NEED this ...more

I read this book a few months ago and it was brilliant. I'm a relatively slow reader who usually takes about 4-6 days to read a book. I rarely ever read anything in 1-3 days, but I binge-read this. It's so sweet and funny and touching and also realistic and perfect?! I loved reading the story of these girls and can't wait to re-read it once it's on shelves and touching readers' lives.
