A book about the power of love and resistance from New York Times bestselling authors Becky Albertalli and Aisha Saeed.


Jamie 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.


Maya 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.


Going 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 crush of the century is another thing entirely.

Seventeen-year-olds Jamie and Maya can’t vote, but they can volunteer in the campaign of their state senate candidate. Jamie’s excited to get involved, but the fact that he’s expected to give a speech at his sister’s bat mitzvah is giving him hella anxiety. Maya needs a distraction from her parents’ separation (during Ramadan of all times!), and her bestie keeps cancelling their plans. When white supremacists target the campaign, and a congressional supermajority threatens to pass an Islamophobic bill, Maya and Jamie realize their activism is more important than ever. Featuring masculine sensitivity, realistic outcomes, and the cutest love story you’ve ever heard, you’ll be going door-to-door raving about this book!
