Hi Meltingpot Readers,
I am so lucky to be on the mailing list of some great publishers. Look what books showed up on my doorstep last week. Thank you Beacon Press and Algonquin!
That’s Prison Baby by Deborah Jiang Stein and My Accidental Jihad by Krista Bremer. Prison Baby I know is going to make me cry and cheer as Stein recounts her coming-of-age tale as a multiracial adoptee who discovered she was born in a prison to a drug-addicted mother. And My Accidental Jihad tickles all of my multicultural romance fantasies as it’s the story of a White American woman who falls in love with and marries a devout Muslim from a tiny fishing village in Libya.
I’ve just started My Accidental Jihad. I’ll let you know how it goes. What are you reading these days?
