Not the Girls You're Looking For is debut author Aminah Mae Safi's honest and smart audiobook about how easy it can be to hurt those around you even if —especially if—you love them. Lulu Saad doesn't need your advice, thank you very much. She's got her three best friends and nothing can stop her from conquering the known world. Sure, for half a minute she thought she'd nearly drowned a cute guy at a party, but he was totally faking it. And fine, yes, she caused a scene during Ramadan. It's all under control. Ish. Except maybe this time she's done a little more damage than she realizes. And if Lulu can't find her way out of this mess soon, she'll have to do more than repair friendships, family alliances, and wet clothing. She'll have to go looking for herself.

Professional reviews

"Narrator Priya Ayyar radiates the intensely emotional highs and lows of being young, reckless, and unstoppable--making her ideal to portray Iraqi-American Leila "Lulu" Saad. With her best friends in tow, LuLu conquers her high school social scene while trying not to cause trouble in her tightly knit, sometimes overbearing Iraqi-American community. Lulu is no stranger to drama, which puts a major strain on the life-long friendships that have helped her cope with new love, questions about sexual consent, and bullying. The husky undertones in Ayyar's voice work well with the story's whiplash humor and snappy retorts. Ayyar savors each moment of raw conversation between Lulu and her friends; however, story's moderate pacing may incline listeners to increase listening speed.
