“Something More” by Jackie Khalilieh

Kylie recommends: Something More by Jackie Khalilieh

Genre: Contemporary romance

Reading Level: YA

Summary: A coming-of-age story about Jessie, a Palestinian-Canadian girl trying to hide her new autism diagnosis while navigating her first year of high school.

Kylie says: I loved the autism representation in this story and the romance was really cute. There are friends-to-lovers, bad boy x good girl, and love triangle tropes. Theater is a big part of the story and Jessie makes a list of goals to achieve that drives the story.
