American-born seventeen-year-old Maya Aziz is torn between worlds. There’s the proper one her parents expect for their good Indian daughter: attending a college close to their suburban Chicago home, and being paired off with an older Muslim boy her mom deems “suitable.” There’s also the real world, beyond Maya’s control. In the aftermath of a horrific crime perpetrated hundreds of miles away, her life is turned upside down. This is the basis for Samira Ahmed's bestselling debut novel "Love, Hate and Other Filters"; we're so excited to welcome this talented author to The Morning Blend!
