Hats Off Corner Welcomes Medeia Sharif

I know it's Friday and I don't blog on Friday unless I screw up and forget something important on Monday! And I did. However, I'm here to try and make up for spacing out and not posting this when I promised.

Hats Off Corner Welcomes Medeia Sharif


A LOVE THAT DISTURBS by Medeia Sharif
Evernight Teen, June 17, 2016

Maysa Mazari is alarmed by her mother’s talk about arranged marriage. Meanwhile, as a hijab-wearing Pakistani-American, she wants to find love on her own. Her judgmental Muslim clique has protected her from racist taunts, although the leader, Aamal, is turning on her as Maysa strays from the group because of her attraction to Haydee.

Haydee Gomez is a former gang member and juvenile detention student. Now living with a clean-cut aunt, she wants to turn her life around, even though one person will never let her forget her roots—Rafe, her abusive pimp. Haydee attempts to pull away from a life of prostitution when she develops feelings for Maysa, although Rafe isn’t willing to give her up too easily.

Finding themselves in danger from Maysa’s friends and Haydee’s pimp, it’s apparent their love disturbs everyone around them as they fight to stay together.

  10. Last year I started something called the Read-the-World Challenge in which we try to read one novel from each of the 196 countries in the world. It has really opened my eyes to different cultures and some outstanding writing. I know that she is an American but it sounds like an enlightening read.
