If this book was only about a 17-year-old girl in love, it would still completely capture the essence of that experience (with all its joys, torments, and jealousies). But this book also tells the story of being a lesbian in a society that threatens and marginalizes you, the story of family expectations versus personal choice, the story of life in contemporary Iran and its secret underground world – passwords, illegal satelites, payed-off cops, and the constant fear of discovery and violence. This book was beautiful, illuminating, heart-breaking, and will stay with me for a long time.

How can you not love a comin-of-age story with a meteorite, a "Secular Church of Kurt Vonnegut" bookclub, and smuggling a dead man's ashes and medical marijuana over international borders? It's just a straight up bonus that this book is also extremely well-written, hilarious, and moving. I'm seriously in love with this book. Great for adults and older teens.
