When Dimple Met Rishi meets Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda in this romantic comedy about two teen girls with rival henna businesses.

Nishat doesn't want to lose her family, but she also doesn't want to hide who she is, and it only gets harder once a childhood friend walks back into her life. Flávia is beautiful and charismatic, and Nishat falls for her instantly. But when a school competition invites students to create their own businesses, both Flávia and Nishat decide to showcase their talent as henna artists. In a fight to prove who is the best, their lives become more tangled-but Nishat can't quite get rid of her crush, especially since Flávia seems to like her back.

As the competition heats up, Nishat has a decision to make: stay in the closet for her family, or put aside her differences with Flávia and give their relationship a chance.

i love this book so much! it's incredibly written and i couldn't stop listening. it's funny, heartwarming and heartbreaking. the discussions about racism, homophobia and cultural appropriation vs appreciation were very interesting. the story didn't shy away from serious discussions, but wasn't heavy all the time either, it was very fun. this is one of the best books i've read in a while. the narration is amazing too, lovely voice and great intonation. can't recommend this enough!
