Jamie is glad to help out behind the scenes at the Jordan Rossum campaign for state senate, but he's not crazy about going door to door and actually talking to people. Maya doesn't really want to canvass either, but her parents might be willing to buy her a car if she does. Thrown together in reluctant political activism, Jamie and Maya get more and more invested in the campaign -- and in each other -- as the weeks go by.

This was a cute YA romance, sweet but a little slow paced for me (maybe because I was listening to the audiobook). It switches between Jamie's and Maya's narration, so you get both sides of the story. YA romance fans should take a look, especially if you like a dash of politics with your romance. ( )

Cute first love story about teens falling for each other while working for a political campaign. It’s obviously based on the Jon Ossoff special election in Georgia and it covers how kids start to form opinions about real world political issues.

It promotes activism, shows benefits of working towards a cause and for a candidate and how that is beneficial even if you are on the losing side. Includes LGBTQ kids in a completely natural way. Opens discussion about dating between different cultures. Discussion on how relationships evolve over time: friendships, marriages, siblings, etc.

Thumbs up! ( )

* I got this book for review from the publisher*

I thought this book was so well crafted. I really liked the political elements that were featured in this read. I really loved the two POV characters a jewish boy and muslim girl set in Georgia. It set in the backdrop of canvassing for a democrat candidate. It was such a heart felt read. I thought this book tackled so many issues like friendship, love and resistance. This book motivated me so much and inspired me. I really loved the various families of these chararacters and this book was had a nice balance between harder topics like racism but also was super funny. I really enjoyed this read and rec it highly. ( )

Read this review for context: https://www.goodreads.com/review/show/5336250779

6/10, only a few days ago I added this to my list and I hoped that it would be an interesting read, today I finally read this 400-page book and I must admit this wasn't the book I was expecting it to be, what I thought was going to be just a romance turned out to a political, American and preachy kind of book which reminisces of an earlier book I read so where do I even begin? It starts with the two main characters Jamie who is a Jew and Maya who is Asian and has a different religion, immediately there is an election coming up soon and for some reason the book decides to bring up the term "canvassing" and I had no idea what it meant, I had a hunch that it meant campaigning and when I searched it up I was proven correct so there's that. The tensions start to build as the election draws closer and that's where things start to get preachy for starters there is this meme called Fifi the dog and some right-wing extremists used that first on social media and then when they saw stickers that said something along the lines of "Vote Rossum!" they replaced it with a Fifi sticker and that's atrocious enough as it is. I had some thoughts about some irritating aspects of the book such as why did it have to be that drawn-out, tedious and stretch over 400 pages? Why did the book have to shove messages like the fact that discrimination is horrific over and over into my head when I already know that and also it was bothersome that this book aged like milk. There's no mention of social media platforms like Discord but maybe that was more obscure back then compared to right now, Twitter is now called X but it's still called Twitter in the book and Super Mario Odyssey was the hit game in the past but now I don't remember anyone playing it anymore. At least the Nintendo Switch didn't age yet. The situation gets direr when a new law is coming called H.B. 28 which long story short is a racist law and despite all the campaigning efforts the results came in and the Republicans barely won over the Democrats with Newton being the new governor of Georgia. He passed the new law much to the characters' disappointment and this wraps the book up bittersweetly. I couldn't relate to that part since I don't live in the United States of America and politics work differently, where I live there is a Prime Minister, premiers, mayors and other changes. Oh wait, I have one more part I must talk about, the romance and I found more problems with that as well which didn't help the book as a whole, first off are the main characters Jamie and Maya, I could not feel anything for them as they developed an attraction and even then that was put to the side most of the time and I didn't like that Maya had to essentially convert her religion to be with Jamie who is a Jew more. That's a bit overkill and problematic and if you like romances you can try Where the Road Leads Us by Robin Reul. ( )
