Misfit in Love (Saints and Misfits) (Hardcover)
An utterly delightful rom-com that has thoughtful Janna, soon to be starting college in the fall, coordinating her brother's almost-wedding ceremony with friends, family and a trio of possible love interests. A hysterically funny first chapter -- literally laugh-out-loud - will pull readers in immediately to stand by Janna as she navigates her faith, family struggles and heart in this strong follow-up sequel to her debut Saints and Misfits.

Janna Yusuf is so excited for the weekend: her brother Muhammad’s getting married, and she’s reuniting with her mom, whom she’s missed the whole summer.
And Nuah’s arriving for the weekend too. Sweet, constant Nuah. The last time she saw him, Janna wasn’t ready to reciprocate his feelings for her. But things are different now. She’s finished high school, ready for college…and ready for Nuah. It’s time for Janna’s (carefully planned) summer of love to begin—starting right at the wedding.
But it wouldn’t be a wedding if everything went according to plan. Muhammad’s party choices aren’t in line with his fiancée’s taste at all, Janna’s dad is acting strange, and her mom is spending more time with an old friend (and maybe love interest?) than Janna. And Nuah’s treating her differently.
Just when things couldn’t get more complicated, two newcomers—the dreamy Haytham and brooding Layth—have Janna more confused than ever about what her misfit heart really wants. Janna’s summer of love is turning out to be super crowded and painfully unpredictable.
