For such a short book, Love, Hate & Other Filters packs quite a punch. It tackles Islamophobia, identity struggles, first love, and so much more.
It took me no time at all to get sucked into this book and fall in love with Maya. She’s such a great main character and I loved following her on her journey as she tried to be a Muslim, and an Indian, and an American, and a teenager.
The romance really took a back seat here. Sure, it was present throughout the book, but everything was really about Maya, instead of Maya and the love interest(s).
I felt like it could have been longer, because once I was sucked in it was over in no time at all, and I would have happily read another 100 pages of Maya’s story. The pacing was really good though, and I can’t fault it.
Love, Hate & Other Filters was a fantastic #ownvoices read. I’d highly recommend it!
