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.

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 romance of the century is another thing entirely.

    Yes No Maybe So by Aisha Saeed and Becky Albertalli is a YA romance novel about two teenagers on a mission. In a mostly Republican town in Georgia, Jamie Goldberg and Maya Rehman are volunteering to secure votes for the upcoming senate election's Democratic candidate, Jordan Rossum. While Rossum isn't the ideal senator, he's better than his opponent, GOP incumbent Senator Newton, who is the ultimate white supremacist. As members of oppressed religious communities, Jamie and Maya are set to be severely affected by the election if Newton wins. As discriminatory bills are passed, and anti Jewish vandalism is found around town, Jamie and Maya become increasingly invested in helping the campaign, while simultaneously becoming increasingly invested in each other. Sparks will fly in this activist romance novel, which allows the reader to reflect upon some of the injustices in the world today while reading about a heartwarming romance between two teens making the best of their lives.
