This Is All Your Fault (Feiwel & Friends)

Set over the course of one day, Aminah Mae Safi's This Is All Your Fault is a smart and voice-driven YA novel that follows three young women determined to save their indie bookstore.

Rinn Olivera is finally going to tell her longtime crush AJ that she’s in love with him.

Daniella Korres writes poetry for her own account, but nobody knows it’s her.

Imogen Azar is just trying to make it through the day.

When Rinn, Daniella, and Imogen clock into work at Wild Nights Bookstore on the first day of summer, they’re expecting the hours to drift by the way they always do. Instead, they have to deal with the news that the bookstore is closing. Before the day is out, there’ll be shaved heads, a diva author, and a very large shipment of Air Jordans to contend with.

And it will take all three of them working together if they have any chance to save Wild Nights Bookstore.

Praise for This Is All Your Fault:

"Safi’s writing style draws readers into the story and makes them feel as if they truly know the characters. This book is a love letter to one of the most popular movies of the '90s and will be enjoyed by everyone who wants to fit in and fight for what they believe." —School Library Journal

"Each brooding, sarcastic, and honest voice is entertaining. ... Readers who appreciate strong character arcs and character-driven stories with clashing personalities will eat this right up." Booklist

"Safi writes an energizing, character-driven celebration of belonging, acceptance, and sisterhood with a clear nod to the importance of community spaces." Publishers Weekly

Praise for Tell Me How You Really Feel:

"Wonderful and fulfilling—an enemies-to-lovers story that stands out all on its own." NPR

"This well-written and supremely satisfying romance should be in all collections." School Library Journal, starred review

"The best kind of rom-com: genuine and absorbing, with wonderfully over-the-top declarations of love." —Shelf Awareness
