Tell Me Again How a Crush Should Feel by Sara Farizan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Leila is an Iranian American teen who attends Armstead Academy, has old fashioned parents and likes girls. When new student Saskia swallows her up with attention, Leila develops a crush on her. But as time goes on Leila is given mixed signals from Saskia, experiences old boyfriend jealousy, and lives in constant fear of being outed (can't have her parents EVER find out). What is a girl to do? I loved Leila, she is authentic as a teen who feels conflicted being Iranian, American & gay. She branches out and joins drama gaining new friends and becoming better friends with an old friend and a better sister. A thoroughly enjoyable story with strong characters.
