“The look on her face makes me feel – I can’t even describe it. It’s like beating every level of every video game. And getting elected president of the universe. And being buried alive in puppies. All at once. “
This is how this book made me feel. 💘

“I’m just saying. This is your narrative. You get to pick the framing. Why does one interview have to define you? Maybe it was just a shitty morning. Maybe you ate something weird for breakfast. Whatever! Look at everything you have accomplish since then.”
Can a Jewish boy, who is too nervous to speak in public and a Muslim girl, who hates change, make a difference? You bet they can, to the political campaign, to each other and to you – the reader of this heartwarming, loveable story.
Buried alive in puppies indeed.
