Summary

From New York Times bestselling authors Becky Albertalli and Aisha Saeed comes a heart-warming, hilarious story about the power of love and resistance.

Jamie Goldberg is cool with volunteering for his local state candidate - as long as he’s behind the scenes. 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 cancelled, her parents are separating and now her mother thinks the solution to her problems is political canvassing - with some awkward guy she hardly knows ... 

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 crush of the century is another thing entirely.

Praise for Yes No Maybe So:

'Heartwarming, poignant and very, very funny' Waterstones

'A novel bursting with hope, truth and action . . . Yes No Maybe So is about speaking up, showing up and being an effective ally. But at its core it’s a reminder that the Greta Thunbergs, Malala Yousafzais and Autumn Peltiers of today were once Jamies and Mayas: everyday teenagers who saw their house was on fire and worked tirelessly to extinguish the blaze' The New York Times Book Review

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Narrating alternating chapters, Michael Crouch and Tiya Sircar are just as appealing as the pair of Georgia teens they portray…Crouch is endearingly awkward as Jamie, who’s nervous about knocking on doors..Sircar conveys Maya’s sunny personality as well as her vulnerability…Listeners will be equally invested in the progression of Jamie and Maya’s relationship and the outcome of the election.” AudioFile
"This is a warm, beautiful story about relationships’ beginnings, endings, and transitions; what it means to fight the good fight; and the transformative power of local activism.” School Library Journal (starred review)
“A genuine, immediate tale about two teenagers facing some of the harsher truths of the world for the first time and finding something to believe in anyway. Buoyed by humor, enriched by a colorful supporting cast, and strung through with a charming (and charmingly awkward) romantic subplot.” Booklist (starred review)
