About this item

Lulu Saad doesn't need your advice, thank you very much. She's got her three best friends and nothing can stop her from conquering the known world. Sure, for half a minute she thought she'd nearly drowned a cute guy at a party, but he was totally faking it. And fine, yes, she caused a scene during Ramadan. It's all under control. Ish.

Except maybe this time she's done a little more damage than she realizes. And if Lulu can't find her way out of this mess soon, she'll have to do more than repair friendships, family alliances, and wet clothing. She'll have to go looking for herself.

Debut author Aminah Mae Safi's honest and smart novel is about how easy it can be to hurt those around you even if -- especially if -- you love them.

I love that GoodReads is a space where readers can review books and interact with one another about their reviews. For my own personal sanity, I avoid reviews. And, inevitably, if I accept friend requests from reviewer-readers, I'm going to end up with a feed full of reviews and a lot of personal angst.
