Yes No Maybe So by Becky Albertalli and Aisha Saeed
In the leadup to a senate election, Jamie and Maya find themselves campaigning for a local democrat – Jamie roped in because his cousin is running the campaign and Maya is doing it for her mother in a roundabout way. But as they go on, there are some pretty nasty behaviours appearing in their local community, and both find they want to get more involved in activism. And each other.
I really enjoyed this book, seeing some of the challenges of living in the US with Trump as president and the appalling behaviour this has allowed in the general population. Of course, this was written before COVID-19, and before the extensive BLM protests across the world, and so it almost feels dated. The romance was the cherry on the cake for me – not really needed, but it definitely worked.
