Descriere

A book about the power of love and resistance from New York Times best-selling authors Becky Albertalli and Aisha Saeed.

YES

Jamie Goldberg is cool with volunteering for his local state senate candidate—as long as he's behind the scenes. When it comes to speaking to strangers (or, let's face it, speaking at all to almost anyone) Jamie's a choke artist. There's no way he'd ever knock on doors to ask people for their votes…until he meets Maya.

NO

Maya Rehman's having the worst Ramadan ever. Her best friend is too busy to hang out, her summer trip is canceled, and now her parents are separating. Why her mother thinks the solution to her problems is political canvassing—with some awkward dude she hardly knows—is beyond her.

MAYBE SO

Going door to door isn't exactly glamorous, but maybe it's not the worst thing in the world. After all, the polls are getting closer—and so are Maya and Jamie. Mastering local activism is one thing. Navigating the cross-cultural crush of the century is another thing entirely.

  • Set during Ramadan, this topical YA tale really brings the charm — awkward charm. Jamie loves local politics, but gets tongue-tied when he pairs up with Maya, whose mom makes her join Jaime canvassing the community for an upcoming election. Muslim American Aisha Saeed ("Amal Unbound") teams up with Becky Albertalli ("Simon vs. the Homo Sapien Agenda") in this heartwarming gem about what a difference two very different teens can make together.

    I love this! Nice developed characters, lovely setting and truthful and important message. The voice actors were great too.

    Easy read, light but strong plot however very slow start
  • (3/5)
    Two teenagers, one Jewish and one Muslim, end up going door-to-door together, campaigning for a state senate candidate. This has less about the actual experience of canvassing than I was expecting but it is nevertheless an interesting look at being seventeen and politically aware during an election -- moreover, aware of policies designed to discriminate against people like you.The dual POV brings breadth to this story and puts Jamie and Maya’s (cute) relationship front and centre, but means there’s perhaps less development in their respective relationships with friends and family than if the story just focused on one of them; there’s potential for some of those relationships to pack more of an emotional punch. But that’s what I want, not what this story is intending to do.

    I really liked this book. I was already familiar with Becky Albertalli's cute books but not at all with Aisha Saeed. Needless to say, they made a perfect duo for this book. It is also an important book. It is very political and has many good lessons for young adults as they start to reach the voting age.

    What happens when two YA powerhouse authors team up? Good things when it’s Becky Albertalli (Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda) and Aisha Saeed (Amal Unbound) and the outcome is Yes, No, Maybe So. No groundbreaking characters here--awkward but cute and Jewish, Jamie re-meets smart and funny childhood friend Maya who happens to be Muslim. Also include the typical YA cast of gay friends, recently separated parents and precocious younger sister. What makes Yes, No, Maybe So unique is the political bend the story takes as Jamie and Maya canvas door to door and campaign for a local Democratic candidate trying to defeat a Republican with known racist and anti-Muslim views. I enjoyed the story of politically active teens trying to make a difference, and Albertalli and Saeed don’t disappoint with their usual humor and sharp writing. An easy sell to these authors’ readers and any teen looking for a fun and sweet high school romance with a smart political view.
