Is It Any Good?

Kids say (2 ):

Once again, Ali offers readers a bright engaging and easily relatable novel about a Muslim teen and her family. While the storyline in Misfit in Love that addresses racism doesn't appear until midway through what has been until then very much a romcom, it's quickly developed and adds a serious takeaway for readers as Janna confronts not only her father's racism but the prejudices based on ethnicity that exist within her own extended family.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
