Episode 8-Author Aminah Mae Safi

Today on the podcast I have YA author Aminah Mae Safi. I was really excited to talk to her and she didn’t disappoint. Her debut book ‘NOT THE GIRLS YOU’RE LOOKING FOR’ is funny and lighthearted and at the same time Safi manages to explore topics such as racism, identity, friendships and family in a very real way. On today’s episode we talk about growing up a mixed race Muslim American in Houston, Texas, her next book TELL ME HOW YOU REALLY FEEL (Feiwel and Friends, June 2019) and the importance of strong friendships. We even manage to touch on her love of the Fast and the Furious franchise and romance novels.
