    *Starred Review* For Jamie Goldberg, campaigning for Jordan Rossum is a way to make a difference before he can vote. Canvassing, though, freaks him out; speaking in front of people (or to them) isn't his strong suit. For Maya Rehman, Rossum isn't impressive—just another white guy running for office, and not even an experienced one. Her summer is already terrible: her parents have split, and her best friend has been totally unavailable. When her mom basically forces her to canvass with Jamie for the summer, Maya is less than thrilled. She and Jamie don't exactly get off on the right foot either; he's painfully awkward and keeps forgetting she's fasting for Ramadan, while she's dismissive of his commitment. But as they slowly find their footing, they both start to feel like they're part of something bigger. With a fervor born from the 2016 presidential election, Albertalli (Leah on the Offbeat, 2018) and Saeed (Written in the Stars, 2015) seamlessly join forces to craft a genuine, immediate tale about two teenagers facing some of the harsher truths of the world for the first time and finding something to believe in anyway. Buoyed by humor, enriched by a colorful supporting cast, and strung through with a charming (and charmingly awkward) romantic subplot, Jamie and Maya's story, their miscommunications, and their true connection will win hearts and inspire action. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Albertalli and Saeed are both best-sellers, their collab comes with a hefty promotional campaign, and this timely love-and-politics offering would draw a crowd on premise alone.
