TJ Powar Has Something to Prove - June 7th

Author: Jesmeen Kaur Deo | Publisher: Viking Books for Young Readers

A charismatic rom-com about high schooler TJ Powar as she sets out to prove that she can be her beautiful, charming self and be hairy. When TJ and he cousin Simran become the victims of an ugly viral meme about the stigma of body hair - and lack thereof - TJ decides to take a stand and stop shaving and waxing all together. As she gains more attention, especially from the boy on the rival debate team, she learns that the hardest person to convince that body hair is beautiful may just be herself.

A book tackling topics of self love, Euro-centric beauty standards, and body image with a strong Desi female lead?! We can’t wait.
