My pick this week…….

becoming jinnqwowBecoming Jinn by Lori Goldstein

Genre: Young Adult Paranormal

Release Date: April 21,2015

Summery from Goodreads

Forget everything you thought you knew about genies!

Azra has just turned sixteen, and overnight her body lengthens, her olive skin deepens, and her eyes glisten gold thanks to the brand-new silver bangle that locks around her wrist. As she always knew it would, her Jinn ancestry brings not just magical powers but the reality of a life of servitude, as her wish granting is controlled by a remote ruling class of Jinn known as the Afrit.

To the humans she lives among, she’s just the girl working at the snack bar at the beach, navigating the fryer and her first crush. But behind closed doors, she’s learning how to harness her powers and fulfill the obligations of her destiny.

Mentored by her mother and her Zar “sisters,” Azra discovers she may not be quite like the rest of her circle of female Jinn . . . and that her powers could endanger them all. As Azra uncovers the darker world of becoming Jinn, she realizes when genies and wishes are involved, there’s always a trick.

Why I am Excited

Genies. Ever sense I was a kid I have been a fan of genies and also always felt sorry for them because of their slavery. I am looking forward to reading a book where genies live among humans and they don’t know. This sounds like a great original unique book.

What is your pick this week?

Happy Reading,

The Reading Rebel
