April's Book Recommendation-Love, Hate and Other Filters by Samira Ahmed

This was one of my first reads of 2018 and I keep thinking about it! Maya is living in the suburbs of Chicago planning to go to film school in NYC when a terrorist attack hundreds of miles away throws her town into a panic because the terrorist shares her last name. Everyone around her seems to be shifting, and there is an older Muslim boy who she begins to date and is liked by her parents, but there’s also a white boy she grew up with that has finally seemed to notice her. Filled with romance and a little bit of suspense this is an #ownvoices debut you won’t want to miss!  Click the book to see it on our catalog!
