Narrator Mitra Jouhari delivers an authentic coming-of-age story. Parvin is on a mission to get a date for homecoming after a summer fling dumps her because "she's too loud." Watching romance movies with her friends, Ruth and Fabian, Parvin theorizes that quiet women always get the man. While she attracts a few boys in her new persona, her Iranian aunt and new Farsi classmate, Amir, love her as she is, leaving Parvin conflicted. Jouhari offers dynamic performances in this well-rounded story. She fully embodies a teenager learning about love, embracing her mixed Iranian heritage, and coping with the hardships of immigration in a jam-packed story. Jouhari breathes life into Parvin's character, making her a realistic character with recognizable emotions. G.M.
