    I read and liked The Lines We Cross, All-American Muslim Girl and A Very Large Expanse of Sea. All three are romances where a Muslim girl is attracted to a boy who is not Muslim. In the first two titles, the boy in question has a father who has a vested interest in promoting anti-Muslim hate speech. The Romeo-and-Juliet-type romance is just one aspect of these stories; the individual personalities of the main characters, as well as their families, friends, and communities add depth and richness.
