Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Ulka Simone Mohanty vocalizes all the key traits of Hana Khan’s personality in this lively story…Mohanty’s delivery is vibrant and upbeat, just like Hana…Mohanty’s narration style capitalizes on the humor laced throughout this title…making us laugh throughout.” AudioFile
“Packed with emotion, this romance is also a beautifully written coming-of-age story about a first-generation immigrant. Hana is a relatable, flawed narrator, and the other characters are complex, nuanced, and well-developed…Readers won’t be able to put this Own Voices Muslim romance down.” Library Journal (starred review)
