Yes No Maybe So
New York Times bestselling authors Becky Albertalli and Aisha Saeed have crafted a resonant, funny, and memorable story about the power of love and resistance. YESJamie Goldberg is cool with volunteering for his local state senate candidate—as long as he’s behind the scenes. When it comes to speaking to strangers (or, let’s face it, speaking at all to almost anyone), Jamie’s a choke artist. There’s no way he’d ever knock on doors to ask people for their votes…until he meets Maya.NOMaya Rehman’s having the worst Ramadan ever. Her best friend is too busy to hang out, her summer trip is canceled, and now her parents are separating. Why her mother thinks the solution to her problems is political canvassing—with some awkward dude she hardly knows—is beyond her.MAYBE SOGoing door to door isn’t exactly glamorous, but maybe it’s not the worst thing in the world. After all, the polls are getting closer—and so are Maya and Jamie. Mastering local activism is one thing. Navigating the cross-cultural romance of the century is another thing entirely.

    There's part of me that is gagging for this book and another part of me that is questioning how the faith aspect is going to be handled. I'm tired of it being wishy-washy and westernised just so that it suits the audience. Just so that Muslims are perceived as normal.Keeping my fingers crossed all the same.

    This book sounds great, and really cute! Becky is good at collaborating with other authors, so I’m sure she’ll be fantastic, and while I don’t know much about the other author she seems cool. So yeah. This’ll be good.

    I just...cannot say enough good things about this book. Come for the romance and wonderful Jewish and Muslim rep, stay to feel completely inspired about politics and an individual's ability to make a difference, whether or not they're of voting age. (And I particularly admire the respect this book pays to teens and the sensitivity to how difficult it is to be pre-voting age and feeling helpless in that regard.) There are so many decisions in this book I just loved, especially the ending, and I I just...cannot say enough good things about this book.

    Politically engaging, YES NO MAYBE SO launches the reader into a campaign that is absolutely essential, much like this book is for everyone. Not only is the romance adorable, the characters are spectacular and refreshing. I adored every moment of this book

    I'm getting too old for this, rip. I wrote a long ass review but this book doesn't come out for a while so I'll hold off posting it for now. But this book was okay, just not for me. It hit a lot of important topics that slapped but the romance was SUPER cringy and awkward. So much of this book was also annoying pop culture references that made me want to yeet myself off a cliff.

    Big nope for me, but I'm really too tired to write a long review for it.I used to enjoy Becky's books, but the last few have left a weird feeling in my mouth when I'm done. This book is co-written with Aisha Saeed, whom I've never read from before. I found that the writing styles didn't stand out too much, but they each wrote a character, like when Becky wrote What If It's Us with Adam Silvera.My issue is that this book dedicated time to things when I often felt other things should be broached.

I found that the writing styles didn't stand out too much, but they each wrote a character, like when Becky wrote What If It's Us with Adam Silvera.My issue is that this book dedicated time to things when I often felt other things should be broached. A subplot involving a discriminatory law starts pretty early on, and I felt more time would be spent there, perhaps bridging off from where the plot was originally going to go. The subplot is not abandoned, but I felt a little disappointed about the scene itself (I wanted the internal dialogue from the other POV character during it) and was hoping it would go to different places. Instead they spend a lot of time at Target and while that's a mood, I can go there on my own time, not while reading.The male POV came off creepy for me at times (I usually hate dual POVs anyway, it's just a pet peeve). This guy has a girl show up at his door crying and he has internal dialogue about how she's letting him touch her. Just felt weird. A lot of his character came off a little strange, but the same can be said about Maya too - her familial plotline is addressed randomly and not finished off, and her actions kind of confused me.Iunno, just a miss for me. Plus, I doubt they could use the Pepe meme for legal reasons, but I really hated how they included Fifi, and the handling of the one alt-righter they show (I don't like things like that only shown as humorous / harmless)1/5

    I have never read a Becky Albertalli book that I didn’t enjoy. She always seems to write humorous stories that also dig deep. I think that this co-authored book is going to be all sorts of fun and the characters sound fantastic.

    Y'all are screaming over Becky, which is 100% great (I have yet to read a BA book, I know, I know. It's on my to-do list, but I am a senior and I have zero time for anything) but I am screaming over Aisha Saeed. This sounds absolutely amazing and all too needed. I am so glad this is going to be a thing.
