what others are saying

"Packed with quips and insights, the wry narrative captures the intense yearnings of young adulthood; the ridiculous spectrum of clueless, controlling, and (sometimes) cooperative adults; and the overwhelming inertia of institutions...A droll, engrossing exploration of privileged teens striving to do better."

- Kirkus, Starred Review for WE DIDN'T ASK FOR THIS

"Exploring universal feelings of friendship and love, Alsaid offers a colorful depiction of two teens discovering what they have in common with others."

Publishers Weekly

"There is a kernel of truth in every cliché, and Alsaid cracks the teen-lit trope of friends becoming lovers wide open, exposing a beautiful truth inside."

Kirkus, Starred Review, NEVER ALWAYS SOMETIMES

"An exceptional tale of grief, ambition, love, and maturity."

Kirkus, Starred Review, NORTH OF HAPPY
