While “Do opposites ever really attract?” is at the heart of Anam Iqbal’s The Exes, this thrilling YA romance explores so much more besides — from the cut-throat world of rich influencers and gossip sites, to true friendship and cultural conflict in families.   

It’s fair to say that while Zara and Karim are both Londoners, their lives in the city are very different. Thanks to being one of The Exes — a clique of super-wealthy, super- attractive west-enders — Karim is a mega online celebrity. Meanwhile, east-ender Zara keeps her head down, and aspires to be a dentist. That said, she’s also deeply brave when it comes to standing her ground, and strong when it comes to handling family conflict.   

Through their alternating narratives, we see how sparks fly between the couple from their first frisson-charged encounters, which leads them to show each other around their version of London. As their relationship hots up, Zara finds her heart torn between two love interests, with her home life torn asunder when she’s compelled to make a stand against her strict parents. At the same time, Karim and his elite clique are being blackmailed by a hugely influential, anonymous celebrity gossip writer.  

Ablaze with the passion and turmoil of first love(s), The Exes also shines a light on how the outward appearance of perfection is often at odds with the truth, and radiates the joy of true friendship and being true to yourself.
