Four weeks before the release of her debut novel, author Sabina Khan tweeted she hadn’t been sure anyone would read her story when she first began writing. “I wasn’t sure if anyone would want to read about the struggles of a Muslim lesbian from an immigrant family,” Khan, 50, wrote. Her fears, so far, have been proven incorrect: “The Love & Lies of Rukhsana Ali” has appeared on several lists of anticipated reads, including being called one of Seventeen Magazine’s best young adult reads of the year.
