How I Found It: Misfit in Love

I had Misfit in Love as one of the books I found on Instagram that I put on my Amazon Wish List. As I was going through and buying some books, I realized that that book was a sequel to this book, Saints and Misfits. I listened to this book solely, so I am basing the spellings of names on how others who have reviewed this book spelled them. Please correct me if I screwed up.

Janna is the daughter of divorced parents. While she feels like her brother, Muhammad, is her mother’s favorite, Janna feels like she is on her own. When Muhammad switches his major, their father decided to rescind his tuition payments, forcing Muhammad to move home with Janna and her mother and Janna to move into her mother’s room. On top of that, Janna’s crush, Jeremy, who is non-Muslim, is starting to notice her. After Janna’s friend’s cousin attempts to sexually assault her, Janna is trying to understand what has happened to her. A story about a girl’s journey through life and high school, this novel shows that there is no difference between religions or race, we are all just trying to get through the day.

One of the things that I love about reading about characters from different religions and cultures is that we learn that we aren’t that different after all. We are all just trying to make it through life regardless of our lineage. I am excited to read Misfit in Love (which looks like it will be released on the 25th of May), and some of the other novels that S.K. Ali has written. Overall, I would give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
