This weekend I am continuing with my read of The Henna Wars by Adiba Jaigirdar for The Irish Readathon. This is our group read for the readathon and I kind of have mixed feelings about it so far. My only issue really is that I don’t like contemporary young adult. I don’t like reading about secondary school, teenage life and living at home with parents. I didn’t really like being a teenager so I’m not too into reading about it. What I like about it is how different it is to my experience. I love reading about Nishat’s relationship with her sister and getting to see a perspective and culture that is so different to my own. It’s a very well written and interesting story so far, I just need to get over the teenage stuff that annoys me.
What are you reading this weekend?
About The Henna Wars by Adiba Jaigirdar
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.
