Review

PRAISE FOR HOW TO FIND WHAT YOU'RE NOT LOOKING FOR
by Veera Hiranandani

“Gorgeously written and deeply moving, with a main character you can’t help but love,
How to Find What You’re Not Looking For deals with the hardest act in one’s fight for justice—confronting the prejudice of those who are closest to us. Hiranandani is a master.” —Adam Gidwitz, Newbery Honor-winning author of The Inquisitor’s Tale

* "A powerful blend of important themes and everyday triumphs and sorrows." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review.
