Whether or not you’ll be traveling this year, it’s always the right time to take a trip through a book. And in our August Spotlight Pick—The Mismatch by Sara Jafari—you’ll head to both modern-day London and revolutionary Iran as a young woman tries to balance love, finding herself, and family secrets.
Soraya Nazari, a timid college graduate and daughter of Iranian immigrants, is hungry for some life experience—so she enlists Magnus, a quintessential British lad, to help. They have so little in common, there’s no way Soraya could ever fall for him . . . or so she thinks. But just as Soraya realizes there’s more to him than she thought, long-buried secrets begin to surface in her life. Will any of her relationships survive the truth coming out?
The Mismatch will have you thinking about finding love in unexpected places (and people), what it’s like to straddle two cultures, and how our families’ choices affect our own. Discuss this and more with fellow readers at our Virtual Happy Hour on Thursday, August 26 at 7:30 PM ET—featuring a special guest appearance from author Sara Jarafi!
