Tala, a London-based Palestinian, is preparing for her elaborate Middle Eastern wedding when she meets Leyla, a young British Indian woman who is dating her best friend.
Spirited Christian Tala and shy Muslim Leyla could not be more different from each other, but the attraction is immediate and goes deeper than friendship. As Tala’s wedding day approaches, simmering tensions come to boiling point and the pressure mounts for Tala to be true to herself.
Moving between the vast enclaves of Middle Eastern high society and the stunning backdrop of London’s West End, I Can’t Think Straight explores the clashes between East and West, love and marriage, conventions and individuality, creating a humorous and tender story of unexpected love and unusual freedoms.
.a brilliantly executed, romantic, sexy, and heart-warming

Great book! I couldn't stop laughing while reading! Shamim is a very talented writer, with an amazing ironic sense of humor! The story is her autobiography, it is very sweet and cute.

Excellent read. Beautifully written with incredible insight into the feelings of all the characters. The protagonists are brought to life among real people that you feel you could know. The environment is one you recognize as universal while still being real life locations you can picture vividly. Beautiful
