Mad, Bad & Dangerous to Know by Samira Ahmed
Mad, Bad & Dangerous to Know by Samira Ahmed is a lush YA novel that spans two timelines. In the present, Khayyam Maquet should be enjoying her Parisian holiday, but instead, she can't stop thinking about her boyfriend, who seems to be ghosting her. But Khayyam's trip gets a whole lot more interesting as she finds herself tracing the forgotten story of a 19th-century Muslim woman named Leila whose life intersected with the likes of Alexandre Dumas, Eugène Delacroix, and Lord Byron.
