I’m back in the blogosphere and will soon post about what’s gone on over the past month—in particular the wonder that was the Writer Unboxed Un-Conference, but today belongs to the amazing Medeia Sharif and her new release THE ATTIC OF SAND AND SECRETS.
Middle Grade Historical and Fantasy, Featherweight Press, November 2014
Learning-disabled Lily desires to prove herself, although her mind freezes when presented with big problems – such as her mother’s abduction. With a French father and Egyptian mother, Lily worries that her mother hid her ethnicity from her French in-laws. However, there’s something deeper going on. Lily finds a way into an attic that’s normally locked and encounters a mysterious, moonlit Egyptian night world. There she finds Khadijah, an ancient stranger who guides her to finding clues about her mother’s whereabouts. Lily becomes a sleuth in both the real world and magical desert, endangering herself as she gets closer to the kidnapper.
The book takes place in 1976. Every host for this book blast is going to post one fun fact for that year. For some of you, this will bring back memories. For younger blog readers, you’ll learn something new.
