Susan is the new girl—she’s sharp and driven, and strives to meet her parents’ expectations of excellence. Malcolm is the bad boy—he started raising hell at age fifteen, after his mom died of cancer, and has had a reputation ever since.

Susan’s parents are on the verge of divorce. Malcolm’s dad is a known adulterer.

Susan hasn’t told anyone, but she wants to be an artist. Malcolm doesn’t know what he wants—until he meets her.

Love is messy and families are messier, but in spite of their burdens, Susan and Malcolm fall for each other. The ways they drift apart and come back together are testaments to family, culture, and being true to who you are.


3 Reasons You Should Read…

The Beauty of the Moment
by Tanaz Bhathena


  • Diversity? Check. Romance? Check. Relatable characters? Triple check. We loved Tanaz Bhathena’s debut “A Girl Like That” and much to our delight, this sophomore novel is even better.
  • Susan Thomas and Malcolm Vakil are both dealing with their own struggles. They kept us on our toes and had us wishing for more as soon as we closed the book.
  • If you’re in the market for a diverse YA coming-of-age story / rom-com that reads quickly, look no further. Grab yourself a copy this week!
