This week’s book is…
A jinni. A princess. And the wish that changes everything. . . .
Najwa is a jinni, training to be a spy in the war against the humans. Zayele is a human on her way to marry a prince of Baghdad—which she’ll do anything to avoid. So she captures Najwa and makes a wish. With a rush of smoke and fire, they fall apart and re-form—as each other. A jinni and a human, trading lives. Both girls must play their parts among enemies who would kill them if the deception were ever discovered—enemies including the young men Najwa and Zayele are just discovering they might love.
This has been one of my most looked forward to books this year by a new author.It looks like it will be unique and original plus middle east mythology isn’t used much in Young Adult and I am excited to read something with jinnis and wishes.I loved the movie Aladdin as a child so I have high hopes that this going to become a favorite.
