Overview


Tala, a London-based Palestinian, is preparing for her elaborate Middle Eastern wedding when she meets Leyla, a young British Indian woman who is dating her best friend.

Spirited Christian Tala and shy Muslim Leyla could not be more different from each other, but the attraction is immediate and goes deeper than friendship. As Tala’s wedding day approaches, simmering tensions come to boiling point and the pressure mounts for Tala to be true to herself.

Moving between the vast enclaves of Middle Eastern high society and the stunning backdrop of London’s West End, I Can’t Think Straight explores the clashes between East and West, love and marriage, conventions and individuality, creating a humorous and tender story of unexpected love and unusual freedoms.

    I Cant Think Straight- my review

    sooo... this book was very interesting on many levels. the characters were all different, but each played a good key role in the story--like im sure many other books are like. its a good love story, for those that are open minded. i liked it mostly because it gave a good glimpse into the life of someone living in Jordan... i loved learning a little bit about the government--thank you Shamim Sarif for including a little bit about the types of societies in the East.
    though its a short book, its well detailed and gives an air of not only romance, but also wonder... for what the characters are going through.
    it gives the lasting message of how not to be afraid of being yourself, whatever you feel being yourself is:)
    i liked it.
