An unforgettable debut novel about first love, family obligation and finding your way.

In the wake of first heartbreak, Nur somehow meets his perfect woman. Yasmina is bright, beautiful and, what's most remarkable, she's into him too. Before long, they are inseparable.

But no relationship is perfect. For Yasmina, the complexities of family and cultural expectation are something she wants to navigate with Nur by her side. For Nur, the pressures of being the 'good son' are suffocating, and soon threaten everything he wants for his future with Yasmina. Can he find a way to offer her everything she deserves?
