AccusedlibraryrecIt’s always great when librarians whom I affectionately call “The Protector of Books” understand your work. I recently received an email from one of my favorite librarians, KC Boyd who is recommending Accused: A Retaliation Novel #2 to middle school and high school students in Chicago.  Accused is a young adult novel and the 2nd book in the Retaliation series. Here’s her review:

“Yasmin Shiraz has written another winner!”

“I was fortunate to receive an advance copy of Accused and my students and I can’t put it down.  I had read the prequel, Retaliation several years ago.  At that time I was a citywide coordinator for the Mayor Daley’s Book Club for Middle School.   After reading Retaliation and observing the similarities between D.C. and Chicago teens, I knew that the students  would enjoy reading the book.  I was right.  Coordinators from across the city emailed commenting how much their clubs enjoyed the story.I was really excited to hear from Shiraz and learn that she has cleverly continued the story of Ahmed and Tashera in Accused.

“This book is a recommended read for late middle school students through high school.”

Thanks KC for taking the time to read my books and support them so fervently. You are appreciated.

Peace & Love,
