Description-

  • Saints and Misfits is an unforgettable debut novel that feels like a modern day My So-Called Life...starring a Muslim teen.
    There are three kinds of people in my world:
    1. Saints, those special people moving the world forward. Sometimes you glaze over them. Or, at least, I do. They're in your face so much, you can't see them, like how you can't see your nose.
    2. Misfits, people who don't belong. Like me—the way I don't fit into Dad's brand-new family or in the leftover one composed of Mom and my older brother, Mama's-Boy-Muhammad.
    Also, there's Jeremy and me. Misfits. Because although, alliteratively speaking, Janna and Jeremy sound good together, we don't go together. Same planet, different worlds.
    But sometimes worlds collide and beautiful things happen, right?
    3. Monsters. Well, monsters wearing saint masks, like in Flannery O'Connor's stories.
    Like the monster at my mosque.
    People think he's holy, untouchable, but nobody has seen under the mask.
    Except me.

About the Author-

  • S.K. Ali is a teacher based in Toronto whose writing on Muslim culture and life has appeared in the Toronto Star. Her family of Muslim scholars is consistently listed in the The 500 Most Influential Muslims in the World, and her insight into Muslim culture is both personal and far-reaching. A mother of a teenage daughter herself, S.K. Ali's debut YA novel is a beautiful and nuanced story about a young woman exploring her identity through friendship, family, and faith.

Reviews-

  • AudioFile Magazine Narrator Ariana Delawari gives voice to the youthfully uncertain Janna, a Hijabi teen and self-described misfit. An excellent student, she's active in the youth group at her mosque but uncomfortable with both of her divorced parents and resentful of her mother's affection for her older brother and his "saintly" girlfriend. As she tries to overcome having been sexually assaulted by a respected boy at her mosque, Janna develops a crush on a non-Muslim boy, further complicating her life. Delawari captures all of these issues with a perfect teen pitch and pacing that underscores Janna's changing emotions. Delawari's facility with Muslim terminology makes the Arabic words fit seamlessly into the story. An excellent glimpse into a culture that may be unfamiliar to listeners.
