    When she gets suspended for confronting her teacher and he begins investigating her activist friends, Zayneb heads to her aunt’s house in Doha, Qatar, for an early start to spring break.
    Fuelled by the guilt of getting her friends in trouble, she resolves to try out a newer, “nicer” version of herself in a place where no one knows her.
    Then her path crosses with Adam’s.
    Since he got diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in November, Adam’s stopped going to classes, intent instead, on perfecting the making of things. Intent on keeping the memory of his mum alive for his little sister. Adam’s also intent on keeping his diagnosis a secret from his grieving father.

MEDIA REVIEWS

This book gave me butterflies. Love From A to Z is the bighearted, wildly charming, painfully real love story I’ve been waiting for. - Becky Albertalli, New York Times bestselling author of Simon Vs The Homo Sapiens Agenda

What makes Zayneb and Adam different is not their faith but their ability to learn from and love one another in a world hurling obstacles their way...Heartfelt and powerful. - Kirkus Reviews, Starred

Heartfelt, honest, and featuring characters readers will fall in love with, this is sure to become a beloved book for many. - School Library Journal, Starred

In Love from A to Z, S.K. Ali once again takes an unflinching and moving look at the intricacies of life as a Muslim teen in an imperfect, multi-cultural world. Beautiful. - Shelf Awareness, Starred

Love From A to Z ends up being a compulsively readable, beautifully romantic look at how fate can intervene when we might just need it the most. - EW.com

This is a beautiful, complex, and important book. I hope that all libraries will get this on their shelves and on display. A wonderful story that centers the Muslim experience and shows the power of anger, peace, and connection. - SLJ Teen Librarian Toolbox

Ali skillfully fashions a love story sensitive to the rules of Muslim courtship that's equally achy and enigmatic. - Booklist

[Adam and Zayneb] are exceptionally appealing as their well-integrated faith leads them in different ways to seek peace, justice, and each other. - BCCB
