"Enemies-to-lovers romance...bursting with joy, humour and so much love" Bea Fitgerald, author of Girl, Goddess, Queen
The brand-new feel-good, hilarious and gorgeously swoony enemies-to-lovers romance from two bestselling, award-winning stars of YA: Faridah Àbíké-Íyímídé and Adiba Jaigirdar, as seen in Teen Vogue's "10 YA books to watch for in 2024" and The Guardian's "Books to look out for in 2024".

Let's get one thing straight: this is a love story.

Said Hossain hates Tiwa Olatunji. And Tiwa would happily never see Said again in her life. Growing up, the two were inseparable, but they have barely spoken since the incident many Eids ago and both of them would like to keep it that way. But when Said comes home for a funeral and the town's Islamic Centre burns down on the same day, they have to face each other again and sparks fly.

Both of them want to see the Islamic Centre rebuilt. For Tiwa, it represents the community that she loves and a way to keep her fractured family together. For Said, it's an opportunity to build his portfolio for his secret application to art school, where he hopes that he'll be able to pursue his dreams of becoming an artist, rather than a doctor.

Working with your sworn enemy is never easy, and this could be the hardest thing that Said and Tiwa have ever done. But in trying to save the Islamic Centre and Eid, could these enemies become something else...?

This delightful romance combines a fresh take on the enemies-to-lovers trope with a feelgood story about family and community.

The Observer

Bursting with joy, humour and so much love - for romance, for community, for home and the people who make us - Four Eids and a Funeral is a beautiful and poignant rom-com. I would do anything for Tiwa and Said and their enemies-to-lovers romance is fraught with tension, complexity and yearning - not to mention a very excellent cat.
