Zayneb just got suspended for confronting her Islamophobic teacher. Adam just got diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. The two meet in an airplane – and ultimately fall in love – in S.K. Ali’s latest novel, told in alternating journal entries from both Zayneb’s and Adam’s point-of-view. “This is a refreshing depiction of religiosity and spirituality coexisting with so-called ‘normal’ young adult relationships and experiences: What makes Zayneb and Adam different is not their faith but their ability to learn from and love one another in a world hurling obstacles their way,” writes Kirkus in a starred review.
