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 page-turner..Cherrygrrl.com

Tala and Leyla have to overcome the barriers that exist between them and a life of love in modern London. These barriers, while obvious on the surface, run deeply when it comes to the other aspects of their lives. But even when all seems lost, they find their way back to each other. It was really delightful to see a happy (with some nail biting, I'll tell you) story of two women of color in love, especially when one is a Muslim of Indian heritage and the other is a Christian Palestinian whose very wealthy family lives in relatively conservative Jordan. -Jessica
