Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "Aminah Mae Safi's Tell Me How You Really Feel is an ode to romantic comedies, following two girls on opposite sides of the social scale as they work together to make a movie and try very hard not to fall in love. The first time Sana Khan asked out a girl -- Rachel Recht -- it went so badly that she never did it again. Rachel is a film buff and aspiring director, and she's seen Carrie enough times to learn you can never trust cheerleaders (and beautiful people). Rachel was furious that Sana tried to prank her by asking her on a date. But when it comes time for Rachel to cast her senior project, she realizes that there's no more perfect lead than Sana -- the girl she's sneered at in the halls for the past three years. And poor Sana -- she says yes. She never did really get over that first crush, even if Rachel can barely stand to be in the same room as her. Told in alternative viewpoints and set against the backdrop of Los Angeles in the springtime, when the rainy season rolls in and the Santa Ana's can still blow -- these two girls are about to learn that in the city of dreams, anything is possible -- even love." -- Provided by publisher.

    Rachel and Sana are two high-school seniors with uncertain futures. Rachel, ready to start her career as a filmmaker at NYU, is one unfixable film away from graduation. Sana hasn't told anyone in her family that she hasn't put down a deposit at Princeton, having instead applied for a medical fellowship a continent away. When Rachel and Sana are forced to work together to save Rachel's project, they'll have to deal with the fallout of a miscommunication nearly four years old, and the dawning realization that they don't have to go through their next steps alone. Safi (Not the Girls You're Looking For, 2018) offers a compelling, queer love story that treats—with nuance and compassion—the pressure to figure out who you are before you graduate high school. Though there are a few plot threads that seem unresolved or wrapped up too neatly, overall this is a novel with unique but realistic teen voices that will have readers hooked until the end. Grades 9-12. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
