There are many things to like about this book: 1) Danyal is a very likable character who is more self-aware than he gives himself credit for. 2) Bisma has a back story that makes you root for her to find better things. 3) The "lets be friends and collaborate" trope. 4) An inside look at what it looks like for desi families to begin the arranged marriage process. 5) Lots of talk about good food. 6) The Renaissance Man competition. I picked this up for the #ownvoices component and am not qualified to rate this title on its authenticity. I really liked the book and learned some new things from reading it. I consider that time well spent. If you liked "Frankly In Love," I also recommend this debut.
