Jaya and Rasa: A Love Story


An unforgettable and brave love story
Sometimes true love is found under a pile of cliches: a twinkling disco ball, cheesy ’80s dance music, and a big poofy dress. Sonia Patel’s Jaya and Rasa: A Love Story is not that kind of love story. Her powerful novel takes readers to lush Hawaii and introduces us to Jaya, a trans teen boy who falls for Rasa, the daughter of a prostitute. There’s no shortage of obstacles — from meddling parents to complicated family histories — standing in the way of their love, which is why you’ll be rooting for these two from page one.
