S4 E14: The Henna Wars

An Interview with James Sie Booked All Night

ENTER THE COURT OF LIONS GIVEAWAY! Entries end August 1, 2020.

When Dimple Met Rishi meets Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda in this rom-com about two teen girls with rival henna businesses. When Nishat comes out to her parents, they say she can be anyone she wants—as long as she isn’t herself. Because Muslim girls aren’t lesbians. Nishat doesn’t want to hide who she is, but she also doesn’t want to lose her relationship with her family. And her life only gets harder once a childhood friend walks back into her life. Flávia is beautiful and charismatic and Nishat falls for her instantly. But when a school competition invites students to create their own businesses, both Flávia and Nishat choose to do henna, even though Flávia is appropriating Nishat’s culture. Amidst sabotage and school stress, their lives get more tangled—but Nishat can’t quite get rid of her crush on Flávia, and realizes there might be more to her than she realized.

Success! You're on the list.

Should Book Bloggers Only Write Book Reviews?

…our identities as book bloggers and book nerds aren’t tied to exclusively to how fast we can read. We also have different fashions, aesthetics, ways of organizing our shelves, crafting hobbies, and even a preferance for bookmarks. We have senses of humor and passions about genre and craft.
