Janna Yusuf suddenly finds herself caring what people think. Or at least what a certain boy named Jeremy thinks. Not that she would ever date him --- Muslim girls don’t date. Or they shouldn’t date. Or won’t? Janna is still working all this out. She is trying to decide what kind of person she wants to be, and what it means to be a saint, a misfit, or a monster. Except she knows a monster…one who happens to be parading around as a saint…Will she be the one to call him out on it? What will people in her tight-knit Muslim community think of her then?
