Written in the Stars By Aisha Saeed
Naila’s conservative immigrant parents have always said the same thing: You may choose what you want to be when you grow up, but we will choose your husband. Dating, even a friendship with a boy, is forbidden.
So when Naila falls in love with Saif, a Pakistani-American classmate, and tries to date him on the sly, her parents are livid.
They insist on a trip to Pakistan to visit their relatives and explore their roots. But several weeks into what she’s been led to believe is a family vacation, Naila suddenly learns the real reason for the trip – her parents have found a 2 suitor and they are determined Naila will marry him.
Naila is aghast. Her only hope of escape is Saif, who swore he would do anything for her. But will it be too late by the time he gets to her? And was this destiny written in the stars? Or can she make her own destiny.
