Something More by Jackie Khalilieh
Something More is a YA romance read with authentic characters thrust into the high school experience. The MC, Jessie, is an autistic Palestinian-Canadian girl who has a special interest in all things from the 90s and the as a result, this novel had a particularly distinct 90s feel to it, even though it is based in our current time. The author, Jackie Khalilieh, really brings everyone in Jessie's social circle to life through their nuanced obstacles and relationships with each other as they navigate crushes, betrayals, and newfound maturity together. Something More is a fun read with excellent representation full of a ton of awkward moments and the intensity of a first crush.
