Hi friends! Welcome back to another installment of Can’t-Wait Wednesday! Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Tessa at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read (generally, books that aren’t yet released). It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine.
Today, I’m going to be talking about Tell Me How You Really Feel by Amina Mae Safi.
Tell Me How You Really Feel
by Amina Mae Safi
Sana Khan is a cheerleader and a straight A student. She’s the classic (somewhat obnoxious) overachiever determined to win.
Rachel Recht is a wannabe director who’s obsesssed with movies and ready to make her own masterpiece. As she’s casting her senior film project, she knows she’s found the perfect lead – Sana.
There’s only one problem. Rachel hates Sana. Rachel was the first girl Sana ever asked out, but Rachel thought it was a cruel prank and has detested Sana ever since.
Told in alternative viewpoints and inspired by classic romantic comedies, this engaging and edgy YA novel follows two strongwilled young women falling for each other despite themselves.
Do you see this? Just look at that cover! This book shows a sapphic couple on the cover… IN YA!! I’m so happy about this! This is the energy that we need in 2019!
Also, the diversity! This book features a Jewish and Middle-Eastern by way of Mexico main character and a Muslim, half-Persian, half-Bengali main character.
While I was looking through the early reviews of this, I saw someone say that it is an enemies to lovers tale and OMG that is my favorite trope. I know that this will be the rom-com that I need in my life for summer 2019!
What do you think of my pick for Can’t Wait Wednesday? Have you heard of this book? Will you be picking it up?
