Review

Buoyed by humor, enriched by a colorful supporting cast, and strung through with a charming (and charmingly awkward) romantic subplot, Jamie and Maya's story, their miscommunications, and their true connection will win hearts and inspire action.--Booklist (starred review)

Heartfelt and real on both political and personal fronts, this politically embedded romance tempers realistic anxieties and disappointments with hope.--Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"Albertalli and Saeed unfold a story told in alternating chapters that weaves together timely, relevant, and engaging themes. With topical references to state and national issues . . . this is a warm, beautiful story about relationships' beginnings, endings, and transitions; and the transformative power of local activism."--School Library Journal
(starred review) --This text refers to the library edition.

Book: Yes No Maybe So
Author: Becky Albertalli and Aisha Saeed
Publisher: Simon and Schuster Publication
🦦
This book was one of my most awaited read for 2020. I have been eyeing it since the proof-read copies were flooding in the bookstagram community. (I tried contacting @simonandschusterin , but that was a bummer 🥺). I am all in for YA books (my favorite genre 🤭). I also read this book for a prompt in #midyearreadathin by @codingbiblio and @thebibliophilemommy for prompt 3.
🦦
#qotd : Who is your fictional crush?
#aotd : Alaska (from Looking For Alaska) and Touka (from Tokyo Ghoul)
🦦
Let’s begin with the title, “Yes No Maybe So” this title gives a very intimidating vibe, real catchy, and a feel that the story is about some confused teenagers (relatable to many of us). I first picked this book for the same vibe. But it is not limited to the teenage drama, but covers an important subject.
🦦
The story is revolving around Jamie, a shy Jewish boy who is not confident to speak in front of a large audience and is afraid to be humiliated (Again!), and Maya, a Muslim girl whose parents have decided to take a break from each other, and bombarded Maya with the news, and it is hard for her to sink in that feeling. Both of the characters are shown fighting against their demons. There are other characters which I like- Sophie, InstaGramm (Jamie’s Grandma), they keep the story interesting, alive, and funny throughout. Their parents are also a major role in the story, they are supportive and understanding. And I hate Gabe 😑, I legit hate Gabe, he’s kind of self-centered guy.
🦦
This book has a lot of political background, actually, the complete story is built upon a local election. Jamie and Maya are volunteering to canvass for the election candidate, Jordan Rossum (Rossum is Awesome!!), and meanwhile how they develop their bond. It kind of gets boring in the beginning because of politics and all but it has a major impact in the end, And the end 🤩, It is fast-paced, you will be turning pages like woosh…woosh..wooshhh really amazing ✨💫, Loved the ending 💞.
🦦
Apart from that the way Becky and Aisha have also presented the discrimination faced by many based on their religion. The adversities of being from a different race or religion. And it is discussed very properly, fitting into the story and characters.
🦦
There is a romantic drama in the end which makes it a complete YA novel, I ship hard for Jamie and Maya. There are queer relationships also in the book which I really liked. It was easy to relate and understand and the writing style was incredible. It is a two-person narration which was a major reason for the book to turn out amazing and for readers, it became a page-turner.
