Rukhsana Ali is a high school senior who is looking forward to graduating and moving to California, where she’s been accepted to Caltech University. She’s especially excited because this means that for the first time she will be able to be out and proud with her girlfriend Ariana. But when Rukhsana’s conservative muslim parents catch her and Ariana together, they send Rukhsana to Bangladish where she is expected to get married. Love and Lies is a #OwnVoices book which deals with the hardships faced by those who straddle two cultures and the fallout of being true to yourself. 5/5 stars - SAPL Read It & Review Contributor
